Frequent lockups :(

Alright, so I've noticed some things about your situation.

1. You're on 4.10. I promise you would enjoy 4.12 more. :)
2. You're using an ATI card, which means there could be specific video
driver issues you're experiencing.

Unfortunately neither of these things can really be solved XFCE. Before
you're sure it's an XFCE problem, can you try using GNOME or something
for the same purposes and see if you get any lock up? (apt-get install
gnome-desktop, and then just log into a gnome session)

I'm not encouraging anyone to use GNOME, but maybe we can at least
determine if this is XFCE's fault, and maybe properly file a bug as
regards that.
