I don't think that it is hardware. As part of my ethernet problem, I get an
error message about bad power saving software. In my case, the power saver
decides that an ethernet link operating at too fast a speed causes excessive
battery drain and shuts down my ethernet.
I suspect that after a few hours, the computer heats up and wants to turn on a
fan to cool off. The power saving function detects this and tries to stop it.
The result is a system crash.
When my ethernet turns off, I get the following errors:
NMI received for unknown reason
Do you have a strange power saving mode enabled?
I looked up the error and found it reported as number 679567. There was no
work-around or fix listed.
If you find anything, let me know.
