are you sure about the 30 second number?  could it be power
management kicking in?  does the power light flicker/go out at about
that time?  you could try disabling power management ("touch
/var/powerd-inhibit-suspend/1" is one way) and see if it keeps
happening.  (i'll be surprised if that's it, but...)
