So FCPX is still wanting to lock up. I don't have to be doing anything in particular for it to lock.
When i just recently locked i was actually responding to an email and came back to FC and it was locked.
Any thoughts on what to try? I heard having google chrome installed could cause it? It locked up when using firefox too?

What Tom said. This isn't FCPX locking up, rather the entire *machine* is locking up. In general a user-mode application cannot cause this, due to the CPU's hardware-enforced isolation between different address spaces.
It can *appear* the app causes it, just like it appears a heavy truck caused a bridge to collapse. However that bridge was damaged and the truck was well within the weight limit. People might say "it never collapsed before until that truck came along". But the bridge was internally damaged. That problem cannot be fixed by using lighter-weight trucks. Likewise with an entire Mac hanging, the problem cannot be fixed by changing something in an app. It must be addressed at a system level, which means things like OS, kernel extensions, hardware, disk space, etc.
