I have installed SparkyLinux 4.6.1 STB Xfce on my new laptop. Want to thank the Sparky team for this wonderful distro. Everything is working fine except one issue that keeps recurring. The OS freezes randomly and since I installed it has occured at least four times.  Please look into this and rectify it. Except this issue I am really enjoying this Debian Stable based distro.
The specifications of my laptop are as follows
Machine:   Device: laptop System: ASUSTeK product: X540LA v: 1.0
           Mobo: ASUSTeK model: X540LA v: 1.0 UEFI: American Megatrends v: X540LA.204 date: 03/14/2016

CPU:       Dual core Intel Core i3-5005U (-HT-MCP-) cache: 3072 KB
           clock speeds: max: 1900 MHz 1: 1900 MHz 2: 1900 MHz 3: 1899 MHz 4: 1899 MHz

Graphics:  Card: Intel HD Graphics 5500
           Display Server: X.Org 1.19.2 drivers: modesetting (unloaded: fbdev,vesa)
           Resolution: 1366x768@60.05hz
           GLX Renderer: Mesa DRI Intel HD Graphics 5500 (Broadwell GT2) GLX Version: 3.0 Mesa 13.0.6

Thanking you in advance.


Have you looked at anything with "journalctl"

Stable - also check out the Debian forum for any similar issues - much wider user base - more eyes. 

"journalctl -b 0"  shows your present logs
"journalctl -b 1" would show your previous log  Problems would be at the end. 
"journalctl -b 1 | grep ailed"  would show all entries that have "Failed" or "failed" in them. 
What were you doing just prior to the freeze?  What programs were you running.  Were you able to go to a virtual terminal?  Ctl-Alt-F1 would put you into virtual teminal 1, Ctl-Alt-F7 puts you back in the desktop - de.  Maybe run htop  in virtual terminal and see if you have any stuck processes going at 100%.  Is your root partition getting full ("df" would show).
