What is your video hardware and driver?

lspci -knn | grep -iA3 'vga\|3d\|display'

Your X.Org log is completely empty? yikes

If it isn't empty then check it to see if the modesetting DDX driver is being used. Or just post it here (using code tags) so that we can check.

If you have an Intel card the modesetting driver can cause the crashes you describe so I would advise that you try the Intel DDX driver (xserver-xorg-video-intel) instead. The Debian packages page recommends otherwise but it does work better for some systems, at least in my experience.

See the top comment on the Talk section of the kernel mode setting ArchWiki page: … de_setting
