    I upgraded to 13.04 and ever since doing so my OS crashes every time I let it sit idle for a few minutes. It hangs then scrolls a lot of dump type listings, only way out is to force shutdown then boot up again.looks like the old windows blue screen. Funny this is why I went to ubuntu, I wish I didn’t upgrade.
