I have changed my wifi setup and it has not locked for two days, so I
hope that solves it. I have found before that mysql has problems when
the connection dies. It seems to be unable to tell the difference
between a query that is taking a long time and a connection that is
broken, so on a broken connection it waits for a few minutes until it
gets a timeout. Perhaps something like this could be happening.
