i have used fedora 22 on a dell xps m1330 laptop for several months and recently (in the last 2 weeks) have found that i am being apparently randomly logged out from the OS - without any warning or explanation. essentially i am using the OS and then i see the text based status messages that appear during the boot process, followed by the fedora login screen. after logging in, the session has been restarted and my previous apps and work are gone.

my research on this has so far only highlighted a similar problem that was experienced in fedora 16 by some people using laptops with multiple graphics cards, including an nvidia one - as i am with my laptop here.

i only noticed this problem after running the dnf update process a couple of weeks ago - during which a kernel update was applied and i think also an nvidia driver update too.

Does it says something like Xorg crashed? any error after restarting the system?

gnome-shell is probably crashing due to some bug in gnome-shell or driver.

i haven't seen any Xorg errors - or any errors at all. there's no error on restart either.

I have also noticed this issue. I am running Fedora 22 on a Toshiba Qosmio X75-A. LightDM as display manager and Gnome 3 as desktop. I am also using Bumblebee on this machine to manage Optimus but I rarely (also never) use the Nvidia GPU.

I too face this problem in Fedora 22. It started to occur approximately in the same time as the post by "ura soul" says. It started after I installed the updates. My machine is Dell 9020 Optiplex. Thanks

I'm having this problem on the regular (at least daily) with both 25 and 26 on XPS 13 9350.

I have no idea how to begin diagnosing and fixing it.
