I have a server in my house with a mouse and keyboard attached, and a monitor - I installed a GUI hoping it would fix this, it didn't. I can't connect to the server, it just times out. Any IRC connection or anything Times out too, that is until I move the mouse. This Iappens every so often (around 5 hours) and it is annoying because it happens when I am asleep. Does anyone know what is happening? My ZNC users are getting quite annoyed. I may just note that I run a IRC Server - and the topic is kept if it is still running, although I can't connect and it times out when doing this, it still keeps all settings as if it was not a crash. I am just so CONFUSED.

Do you ask in power management that your PC go in hibernate or sleeping mode after a time ? If it is the case, just change the configuration to 'never'. You can put your screen in sleep mode separately.

The Power management options are that the screen never turns off, as I turn it off manually. There is also no suspend/hibernation options set. That's what is so confusing about it. –  Micheal Harker Dec 27 '11 at 15:20
    
If you check your logs, do you see a log at the suspend time ? –  Dom Dec 27 '11 at 15:40
    
Which logs shall I check? –  Micheal Harker Dec 27 '11 at 16:01
    
/var/log/syslog or /var/log/messages? –  Tim Dec 27 '11 at 16:40
    
There seems to be no logs of anything happening –  Micheal Harker Dec 27 '11 at 16:55
