As reported in the libreoffice thread. I experience not being able to bring 
the display back to life after screen lock and monitor power-off occurs. This 
is with Trinity desktop (KDE 3.5.12). This behavior just started a week or so 
ago and only occurs after the screen has been locked overnight. When this 
occurs, if I ssh into the box to restart it, X is consuming 100% of the CPU. 
It looks like some runaway process.

I am running dual-screen with nvidia 295.33-1 & linux 3.2.13-1. The strange 
thing is X taking 100% of the CPU - I haven't seen that before. I'm attempting 
an update and will report back if it occurs again tonight.
