Thanks for your replies...
No, the floppy drive wasn't in use....no I/O activity. I have
the automatic backup feature switched off and do a "savelog"
when I take a break.
The computer *appears* to just stop, but I know I can continue typing
in a call sign (apparently into the keyboard buffer) because
when the "hang" event is over the rest of the call will appear
on the screen and all is well again. It's almost like the
computer is "refreshing" itself.
