(I mentioned this earlier on the "newbies" list, but I was informed it was more of a "questions" question)

I have FreeBSD 5.1 installed on my box at home. Install worked smoothly the second time, we just kind of messed up because it had been awhile since my buddy installed his. Well anywho, it works... sorta.

The thing is this: after a number of hours of non-use, the machine just quits responding. A movement of the mouse, a few key presses on the keyboard don't help. I restart the machine and it during the initial boot when I can access the BIOS, the input devices work fine. Once it reaches the bootloader, the keyboard doesn't respond.

So I turn it off, unplug both keyboard and mouse (both of which are ps/2, btw) and then turn the machine back on. It works after that. However, after several hours of non-use, it does the same thing over again.

I would consider myself an intermediate when using Linux (RedHat 5.x-7.x) and I've printed off the a good amount of the manual from the FreeBSD website.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.
