I performed the 3.0.2 update first thing when I got my touchpad. The tweaks I'm referring to are the Preware tweaks that are listed within several articles that tell how to speed up performance of your TP, including Govnah and Uberkernal 1.5 overclocking.
I decided to test each tweak one by one to see which one was possibly causing the problem, because it didn't do this prior to tweaking. The first one I turned off was the Govnah overclocking to 1.5 Mhz. So far, the PROBLEM IS NOW COMPLETELY GONE!! I set it back to the Palm Profile of 1.2 Mhz and restarted Luna, and I've been running it for about 12 hours and so far there has not been a single freeze.
This may be just from restarting Luna, so I will keep a close eye on it for another couple of days and see if it continues to not freeze. I have a friend who is having the same problem with his and he also has his overclocked to 1.5 Mhz. If mine stays stable, I will try to duplicate the fix with his to see if it is indeed this tweak and not just a fluke with mine.
And just to clarify the exact problem, the system appears to freeze for a 4 to 7 second duration soon after opening a new card or going to a new webpage. This happens in the web, mail, pictures, app catalog, games, quickoffice, etc. Doesn't seem to matter what app it is, but it is pretty consistently about a 5 second freeze. During the freeze you can not type, scroll or anything. You can still go into and out of card view during the freeze, you just can not interact with data in the card.
If the 1.5 Mhz turns out to be the culprit, I will try other overclocking settings to see if I can find a more stable setting for those of us experiencing this problem.
