I am encountering a similar issue on a new Dell G5 5587. I've installed Ubuntu 18.10 (fresh download today) alongside Windows 10 on a 1TB nvme SSD.
I can boot into Ubuntu, but the system hangs shortly after boot, usually less than 5 minutes. I have not determined what specifically triggers the hanging. I have noticed that it does not happen all at once. By that I mean that I lose mouse first (touchpad and wireless mouse), but I can still use the keyboard (sometimes) for a few seconds after the mouse is gone. This makes me wonder if the system is actually frozen or if there is just no HID being recognized. I've also seen the system "lag" input from the keyboard: no response immediately but 30-40 seconds later characters that I typed will appear. I also notice that the fans kick on high, so there may be a runaway processes. In the current state 18.10 is unusable. I haven't even been able tail the log files, I encounter the hang before I have time to troubleshoot the issue. I'm not sure if it's the same issue or something specific to my hardware, I'll update as I continue to try to troubleshoot. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Kernel Packages, which is subscribed to linux in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1798961 Title: Random unrecoverable freezes on Ubuntu 18.10 Status in linux package in Ubuntu: Triaged Status in linux source package in Bionic: Triaged Status in linux source package in Cosmic: Triaged Status in linux source package in Disco: Triaged Bug description: First thing I notice is that the mouse cursor freezes as I'm using it, then I hit the CAPS LOCK key and the LED indicator doesn't respond. Then I try the "REISUB" command, but it doesn't do anything either. Only a hard reset works, pressing down the power button for a few seconds. How to reproduce? I couldn't figure out a consistent method. It is still random to me. Version: Ubuntu 4.18.0-10.11-generic 4.18.12 System information attached. Also happens under Arch Linux and Fedora. I've talked to another user on IRC who seems to be having the same freezes.
