Any news on if "acpi-support" was what was needed? ???

I reinstalled Peppermint 7 Respin 64-bit.  Did all the routine updates, reducing swappiness, tweaking the SSD and setting up /DATA partition in /etc/fstab.  Did a full shutdown and then booted up.  Five minutes later, boom.  The system freezes  >:(.  With that test out of the way, I tried u mac's advice.  In: /etc/default/grub, I added reboot =apci to:
Code: [Select]
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
it now reads:
Code: [Select]
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash reboot=apci"
Finished it up with:
Code: [Select]
sudo update-grub
and did a full shutdown and boot.  There have so far been no freezes.  I've done several full shutdowns and boots in 30 minute intervals.  It's appears to have done the trick.  Only time will tell if it's a fluke or a real solution.  Let's hope it's the latter  ;).
