There was a discussion before about intermittent screen freezes using TW
and the 5.9.x kernel. Some blamed the Intel graphics, while I had
experienced this same effect with AMD, NVIDEA and Intel and have
reported that also in mentioned thread. I have not seen any message that
the problem has been tracked and is/will be corrected.
Today, I did an update to 5.9.12, started a rsync session (within the
standard Plasma KDE environment) to download a whole nongnu repository
and stopped all programs using the displays.
I did this because I had noticed and reported that too, that the freeze
problem occurs mainly when the network is rather busy and I stressed the
display usage. I wanted to see if the network alone could freeze the
system. The result, it was a DEEP FREEZE!!. Only a system reset would
bring the system back to life.
It is unclear how long it took to get a system wide freeze, - was not
there to watch due to some late minute shopping - but it must have been
anywhere between one to two hours before this occurred. There is no such
issue with the 5.8.15 kernel detected.
So - again - don't look at the visible effect, but rather look at the
network portion within 5.9.x.
Anyhow, this issue has plagued the OpenSuse kernel 5.9.x series long
enough. I hope this issue is resolved when moving forward to the 5.10
