    Hello all!

    I had (and still have) the same problem (almost) with my Benq
Joybook S32. It has an Intel GM965.

    But my problem is a little bit more different:
    * sometimes after a resume the X remains pitch black (I guess it
doesn't exit from the DPMS mode), and to "help" it I switch to VT1 and
then back to the VT12 (where I have my X configured);
    * but on the other hand if before I suspend my laptop I have
connected a monitor (on VGA), and on resume the monitor is not
connected any more (or the other way around, no monitor at suspend,
but monitor present at resume), my monitor goes again pitch black, but
this time nothing helps except another suspend and resume.

    Till this day I haven't figured a way to solve the problem, but I
didn't investigated it more in depth.

    Did I mention that I use the mod_setting? Maybe it happens only in
this case?

    I hope that at the end of this thread we solve the problem. :)
