These crashes/hangs happen very reliable for me too. Stopping powerd
was a nice hint :-)
I did the following, in case someone has the same issues:
1. boot
2. switch to a console (CTRL+ALT+F2), as soon as the GUI starts
3. press enter to activate the shell
4. (optional) ignore the timeout errors related to the libertas
driver, just keep typing
5. execute 'systemctl stop powerd.service' to stop the currently running daemon
6. execute 'systemctl disable powerd.service' to prevent the daemon
from starting on the next boot

Now, I'd like to have the wireless working somehow. Any hints, or is
there a ticket open for this already?
