      Had very similar problems with mine also. I found out
      the Linkstation is very sensitive to external
      electro-magnetic fields. Sometime just by moving it a
      little it would stop the lockups.
      After I put the Linkstation in its permant home it
      started locking again, it was within 3" of a ups. I
      made a shield out of sheet metal and placed between
      the ups and the Linky and all is well.
      PS. I have 2 120 Linkys and both have this problem.
