    My Satellite P35-S609 locks up after a period of inactivity. The
    unit's less than 6 months old, so I don't think it's a dirty fan. I've
    heard that the wireless card can cause the problem, so I've tried to
    disabled it and/or turned the switch off. Neither or both work. When
    it locks up, I am forced to press and hold the power button for a few
    seconds. Ctl-Alt-Del doesn't work, even after a long wait.
    An Ideas?
    Also, I wonder if there is an error log created when it locks up.
    Anyone know where to look for that?
