Random Freezes on Idle

Dear All,
Installed garuda few months ago, all was working well. However, since few weeks, the system has been freezing on idle requiring hard-reboot by pressing reset button. No response on keyboard or trying to get to any tty.

Some of the problems I recently had was with a PSU, that is sorted. For some reason SDDM stopped working for me, and I had to change my DM to Slim. Apart from that, haven't tinkered around much with the system.

Any thoughts?

Lot of people are experiencing freezes on Zen kernel

I suggest you use linux-lts kernel until the problem is fixed in upcoming updates.
