WSJT-X/WSPR dies after 2 hours on Win10: CPU speed?

MAIN PROBLEM: WSPR locks up computer after about 2 hours operation.
QUESTION: Is this due to insufficient CPU speed?

DETAILS:

Rig
* Lenovo Ideapad 100s laptop
* Windows 10
* IC-7200
* WSJT-X 1.6.0
* 1.33 Ghz CPU <--------- (below the 1.5 Ghz recommendation!)

--Runs well but after 2 hours, Windoze 10 icons on Desktop disappear.
--Bottom-right corner of screen, text appears stating "Build".
--About 2 minutes later, entire computer screens goes black; only the cursor is still there and can move around. No other keys operable.
--Computer is locked up and must be powered down and back up to regain control.

I've gone through this routine about five times now, even with the "Resource Manager" running to see how much free memory is available; usually about 20 Mbytes at the worst.
