Re: Random Screen Blank on startup all the Time.



This happens to me about 3-4 times when I first boot X.org.  It's like
it goes into screensaver mode.  However, I can recover by just
pressing any key, and the monitor will turn back on.  It will turn off
my monitor about 3-4 times but then after that it goes back to normal
and never happens again.

I have posted to Bugzilla but have not gotten any replies. I am
wondering if anyone is familiar with this problem:



Description of problem:

I have an error where the screen blacks out [seems to turn off all

output to the monitor] after a certain period of time whether I am

activly using my system or it is idle. I need to either restart the

computer to regain functionality or SOMETIMES i can Ctrl-Alt-F7 or F8

and it will switch back into the X session I had been running.

Otherwise Ctrl-Alt-F1 doesnt even bring up the shell,

Ctrl-Alt-Backspace doesnt restart X, and the keyboard seems to not

function [i know this because no keyboard lights go on for Num/Caps

lock]. It occurs after my installation of FC2 x86_64 today and I

origianlly thought it may be the wrong monitor that I specificed, but

I returned to generic and it still occurs. I am running a PCI ATI

All-In-Wonder Radeon [i believe 7000 series] on a FC2 AMD Athlon64

system with x86_64.



Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

default FC2 x86_64 release



How reproducible:

Always



Steps to Reproduce:

1. Install FC2 on x86_64

2. Boot up X and logon

3. Use the computer for 10-20 minutes or let it be idle and will find

the screen go blank

   



Actual Results:  Screen goes blank. Usually keyboard is unrepsonsive

to X restart commands or Shell keycodes.



Expected Results:  X continue to function normally. No reason for the

screen to go blank. The drivers and config SEEM to be correct as it

takes time for this issue to occue.



Additional info:



Have tried to reconfigure the monitor display. Didnt work.
