I changed Screen Saver Prefs to -

Power Management -
 - Put computer to sleep : never
 - Put display to sleep : never

After 5.5 - 6 hours (according to BOINC which only records it's active time) the computer locked up. No screen saver activated but I could not ping the box and the keyboard/mouse had no effect.
I tried to restart with a power reset. The first try failed at the point the busy (circular) mouse pointer appeared. On the second try there was a routine check of the drive, then the computer came up normally.

I did the killall -9 gnome-screensaver, then created /tmp/gs.log as per your instructions to David.
I am attaching it and Xorg.0.log however the ~/.xsession-errors file does not exist.

I hope this is of some help
