I do have the Spotify 126.96.36.1997 app on my Linux Mint 18.2 Xfce 64 bit environment.
It is a great app. However it reboots my 10 year old Sony Vaio laptop every few minutes.
I had exactly the same issue while using the Chrome browser. In Chrome I switched off hardware acceleration which solved the Chrome reboot issue.
However the Spotify 188.8.131.527 app does not have the option to switch off hardware acceleration.
Any idea how to solve this problem?
Thanks and regards,
