i forgot one thing :
i got also an error about NLS charset cp437 not found or something similar....

but, more important  :

actually the laptop doesn't freeze ONLY if connected to the power supply,
if i go to shell using only the battery i got the usual crash :/
so i suppose it's not an apm problem...
