Screen goes blank
I installed SUSE 10 seemingly without any problems. It boots up and I can play games, run programs, etc. But after a while, the screen goes blank and it never comes back. I can move the mouse or beat on the keyboard with no results. One of Infoworld's editors had the same problem on his laptop after installing SUSE 10.
I really want to use this software and get familiar with it, but if I have to reboot every time I use it it's useless. I tried to update the bios, but there aren't any available updates. I also tried turning off everything in Kpowersave (KDE) with the result that it will come back after 15 minutes or so, but not an hour or more. Windows comes back after blanking the screen, even if it stays blank for a day or two, so I know the hardware will do it. How do I get Linux to work the same way?
