I've had this problem when using ICEWM, my comp would go to sleep and wouldnt get backup. Same problem as as you, the monitor as well as the disks indicate that everything is ok [ie. press Ctrl+Alt+F1 after it boots up, and it makes the sound of switching to the terminal mode ], but i cant see any thing on my monitor.
And the wierdest of all things was it wouldn't show me anything on my monitor
even when i booted into windows..
I have no explanation as to what is happening but I did the following, I know it's really funny but this is what I did..
Plugged off my comp and waited , and inserted the Knoppix cd [coz I didnt want it to screw up my system by rebooting unsafely] , kept repeating it and I also reset my monitor back to factory settings, did it all blindly[nothing on the monitor...]
After some time it came back, I logged back in and passed apm=off, acpi=off to my kernel in the /boot/grub/grub.conf and decided not to use "god damn "powersaving at all...
Now everything is working perfectly...
"THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST FRUSTRATING AND WIERDEST PROBLEM I'VE FACED EVER"
If any one can explain why this is happening.. Please enlighten me...
