I've been having this unusual problem where after my T60p has been running for a while and I've opened several videos, opening a new one, whether it is online or on my Hard Drive, blanks out the screen and makes the laptop freeze. This forces me to do a hard shutdown (holding down the power button) to continue use of my laptop.
I've been trying to diagnose this problem - I installed Thinkpad Fancontrol and this tends to happen even when my gpu is at a mere 63 degrees Celsius.
I've sent my laptop to EzServ, had them replace swap out my planar, and this still happens.
Can this have something to do with RAM? I am asking specifically about RAM because this problem tends to happen after I've had Firefox open for a while. I ran memtest and it shows no errors.
...and please feel free to ask me for more information!

I commented on your OTHER THREAD
Maybe on that thread you could post a bit more information on your config we can see if anyone has some further ideas.

Thanks for the post.
This crash happens, however, right when I OPEN a video. I'm not idle and I'm very aware of my power settings, which are set to ignore idle states.
