You are right, albi! Turning off ACPI took care of the lock up. Thanks!
I do miss the power management, though. Now I need to figure out
how to turn off just the part that is causing the problem.
I am currently trying to remove all the XFree86 and kde modules from
5.2.1 so that I can put in the Xorg stuff from 5.3. If there's a
procedure for that somewhere, that'd be awesome.
