Are you still using the same monitor?  I get a delay on my system, but
I'm sure that's down to the monitor I'm using taking a moment to sync up
to the new rate, blanking the screen in the meantime.  If I type while
the screen isn't showing anything, it's there when the display does come
up.  My prior monitor was much quicker at resyncing, and I don't recall
this issue with it.
