Precisely which "resources" are being wasted? I guarantee that if you

THat's ridiculous! Checking my system logs, I can tell you that I have
rebooted my machine since I installed SuSE 6.1 a couple of months ago. I
use X exclusively! If your machine is dying that frequently, you have
a serious problem somewhere. Linux just doesn't have to be rebooted - X
or no X!
