Jerome suggested cutting PM from the kernel, Declan suggested cutting it
from the Bios.

Cutting from th kernel didn't work, but, so far.......
After 3 hours, not a lock up after cutting PM from the bios.
I, therefore, have a theory:

When running in console mode there is activity which prevents the Bios PM
from activating, but under X, the console is virtual (soft) and not noticed
by the Bios.   I continue to stress test, and will report back in due
