StartX only shows blank screen until reboot
I'm running redhat 7.3 on a Dell Inspiron 3700. Everything was working fine until I closed the lid. This caused the system to go into standby. Now when I run 'startx' I only get a blank screen. The only way out is with a hard reboot. "Ctrl, Alt, bspace" doesn't do anything.
Gnome was working fine before this. I assume X still thinks that the system is in standby. Or something has corrupted it.
