Can't Wake Up


Hope someone has some insight to this...

I am using Mandrake 9.1. I've been using it for a year now, with no problems.

In the last 2 weeks, I've had a problem where when it goes to sleep, I cannot wake it back up. If I remote login and kill the X process, it wakes up (and goes back to the login screen). Any ideas how to fix this? ilke I said, it weas working fine up till a few weeks ago.

In the last couple of weeks, I:
- replaced the HD (I made sure the jumpers were the same)
- I installed LAME

I don't think this is a HD or BIOS problem because everything works OK when I kill X.

I should also say that I'm using a USB KVM switch, but even when I plug in a USB mouse directly to the box or a PS@ mouse, I can;t wake it up. I've also tried reinstalling the OS and using different users, but still the same problem.

Any ideas?


TIA

Ok, looks like the problem is the video card driver.

When I replaced the HD, I reinstalled the OS (which didn't change) and installed the latest video driver. If I install an older driver, it is not locking up.

Thanks
