Ah! that could be the culprit. Of course...
I have an external hard drive that I've been using for 3 years now. That's got to be it, since it's become a bit slow and the only devices plugged in are the keyboard and mouse.
I'll try and unplug it next time the hang happens to see if it's that's it. Guess there's not much else I can do about it though, eh? :\

Games and Data are both stored on separate drives. I'v been told 128Gb fills faster than you would expect. Is this correct?
Very correct. In fact I got the 250GB version and I'm already using about 60%. Mind you, the editing programs like Photoshop and Vegas hardly take up any space, it's the games that do. Battlefield 3 alone takes up 34GB ! I have GTA IV installed on my SSD as well. However WoW is on the HDD, since loading times won't benefit that
much anyway from being on an SSD.
Hope that answers your question
