I just installed Slackware 10.1 on my laptop and I have this weird problem, after my screen saver comes on and runs for about 10-15 minutes, the screen goes blank and it won't respond. The only way to get the system back is to kill the X-Windows. I have tried doing:
xset s noblank
xset s 600 600
and so on but the problem still persists. My DPMS is disabled as well.
I have also tried setting these options in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.
I am perfectly fine with my screen saver always being on, since the laptop has hardly any battery life.
What do I need to do to make it stop blanking my screen?
P.S. I have not had this problem with Slackware 10.0
