Fedora blank screen

Hi All ,

I have installed Fedora 8 before 5 months. I normally use Eclipse,java,firefox,tomcat . Nowadays when Im working in any of the said applications suddenly my desktop goes off like a blank screen as if my monitor switched off. After 30 secs or sometime the user login page comes. I need to restart all my work again. Help me out in this issue...

I use gnome.
