Re: problem with monitor 2



Dear Keith,
thanks for your help. I have tried doing what you suggested and removed apmd 
(rpm -e apmd). apmd was successfully removed, but unfortunately it didn't 
solve the problem: the screen keeps turning black after 5 min of non-use.
Any further help is greatly appreciated!
