I doubt you've done anything wrong. There are over 33,000 unanswered posts on LQ: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...n=norepliesall
so it always seems like a minor miracle to me when one of my posts does
As for the black screen, do you mean it happens while you're actively using the computer, or is it the power-saving timeout thing kicking
I've been having mine go black and then crazy and then black again and finally OK (without any intervention) while actively using the machine, but only since I "upgraded" to Mandrake 10.1. It happens rarely (maybe once every couple of hours at most) but is really annoying.
One time, and one time only, the machine crashed coming out of actual timed-out power-saving mode.
So if that's what's happening, I wonder if it's something to do with our distributions and kernel 2.6-something...?
