    Random log outs when playing Armagetron


    Hi, second question here,

    For some reason, whenever I play Armagetron (an OpenGL 3D Tron Game), I randomly get logged out after awhile. I don't get an error message, I just get taken to the log in screen. It does this every time I play. I also notice that if I play and then exit the game, it will log me out eventually even though I quit the game. This seems very odd. I am using the XFree86 driver on a SiS card on my Acer Aspire 3000:

    Code:
    Graphics Card (IGP):
      Brand: SiS 760
      Interface: AGP (Integrated)
      Bus Speed: 8x
      Chipset: SiS Mirage 330
      Core Clock: 166 MHz
      Pixel Pipelines: 4
      Memory Type: DDR
      Memory Width: 64 Bit
      Memory Clock: 400 MHz (200 MHz x 2)
      Onboard Video Memory: 32 MB
      Total Video Memory: 128 MB (Shared)
      Max Resolution: 2048 x 1536 @ 75 Hz
      RAMDAC Clock: 350 MHz
      Outputs: VGA
      SLI: No
      VIVO: No
      Overclocked: No
    I am running it on medium settings at 1024 x 768 (I can post exactly what they are if necessary) and am getting 30 - 45 FPS. The game itself runs fine, it occasionally "hiccups", but it is no big deal. Its the fact that it just suddenly terminates that is very annoying. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions and help to resolve this.

    Thanks,
    BigFoot
