@amigasociety
I notice in your signature that you have a SAM. Is your X1000 less stable than the SAM? If so, I would guess that the hardware drivers for the X1000 are not quite mature and may still require some updates. That's just a quess since I don't have an X1000 yet.

This is interesting, I have never had an X1000 crash at all.
I would go with what tony said, some dodgy app causing it.

My normal testing proceedure;
I normally leave Timberwolf running and Tunenet (playing 80's) for atleast 6 hours without issue.
The system, turns monitor off after certain amount of time, move mouse it comes back on.

@amigasociety

Are you seeing a lot of Grim Reapers? Or is your system just randomly locking up without warning?

Some grim reapers along with a random crash here and there. Normally when running Timberwolf and TuneNet I can almost guarantee a crash and great reapers with WookieChat.

One day maybe I can video the crash.

In my experience TuneNet is fairly unstable especially when other stuff is running at the same time. Sometimes crashes on exit too.

In my case it are the browsers that lock up the machine. muiOWB, OWB, Timberwolf, IBrowse: they all lock up. Sometimes in the first minute, sometimes after many many minutes.
YAM never locks, though.

Maybe having over 16,000 tracks has something to do with it. :lol:

IBrowse is the prime example of a crashable program. It crashes for me every second time I run it. The crash is always the same, a buffer overflow by one byte. I always close everything else before I try to run IBrowse, because the system has to be rebooted if it crashes.

Unfortunately I still have to use IBrowse for one job.

Timberwolf crashes occasionally (well, locks up hard with no crash log and the system has to be rebooted). I rather suspect it is in a loop rather than a crash, but it never recovers.

OWB is fine. I use only the RA version.
cheers
