This sounds slightly familiar. I sometimes have these freezes too,
but when I'm still in xfce4. Pressing the power knob still works for me,
as well as logging in remotely via ssh. This means that only the screen
(which turns black, no backlight on) and keyboard/mouse are frozen.
This is with an Asus A6JE, Ati Radeon X1450 running xorg 7.3 with
