Sometimes after I exit X, the system totally hangs after the prompt comes up. My keyboard seems to freeze up completely. Any suggestions?

This is a longshot, but are you using GNOME2? I have similar problems under certain circumstances with it. If you are, try:

1) Rebuild it with something conservative. I use -O2 -march=athlon -fomit-frame-pointer -pipe

2) Use something else, even though GNOME2 is very nice.

If none of this applies, sorry, unless you compiled something with very adventurous flags, I have no idea.

For others to help though, it would be useful if you post what Gentoo version you are using, and whether everything has recently been updated.
