Since I started running the proprietary driver, I will get booted back to the log in screen at seemingly random intervals whenever I am on battery power.

Is this a common issue? Is there something that I did incorrectly?

Fixed it!

Taking another look at it, I realized that flash-heavy websites like Hulu would cause the crash. I checked the NVIDIA configuration settings and saw that the GPU was being scaled back to accommodate for battery mode. Needless to say, I haven't seen any more crashes.

I hope that this helps anyone experiencing similar issues.
