You will need to provide a good deal more information before a useful answer 
is likely.  For instance, what operating system do these computers use?  If 
the computers are all running networked in a lab, is there some automatic 
maintenance being run?  What hardware specifications (CPU, memory, harddisk 
storage, etc.)?  What size data sets are being used?  And, more importantly, 
what does "kicking you out" actually mean in terms of computer behaviour?  
Does R simply crash?  When you "about half of us"  is it always the same 
half?  Does it occur at the same time of day?  There are far too many 
unknowns for a diagnosis.
