Nvidia 9700m, random black screen caused by performance mode.
Here is the issue I am having, I am running on ubuntu 10.04 and using the latest nvidia driver. What I experience is a random black screen, my monitor goes dead and won't turn back on till I hardboot. I had this issue on windows and solved it by downloading rivatuner and telling it to force my 9700m into staying in 3d performance mode at all times. I know it has nothing to do with temps or anything like that. All I need to know is how I can duplicate what I did with rivatuner on windows. I tried forcing the powermizer to stay at the max performance level, but it did not solve the issue.
