Ahhh I've seen this two on my laptop, and I was blaming the wireless card
:) Its an ATI video card, so I dont thats what it is.
It does coincide with the wireless card giving up, but I guess that must
be a symptom os the same problem.<-

I should also mention we have the same problem in another machine (P4) with 
different hardware (both have an NVIDIA card, but not the same one).  It's 
extremely annoying.
