Same here. I have seen my FC freeze when I have multiple applications 
open. One of the things that I noticed though, it froze only when the 
system was idle .. such as when I would be working on something else. i 
see that the screen is blank and then I move the mouse, the next thing I 
know is that the system is frozen, i can move only the mouse and I need 
to do a hard reboot to bring back the system.

And I have never had these issue with FC 4,5,6
