Screen won't unblank after auto-blanking on keyboard or mouse input

Beginning with 2.6.37 when the screen blanks automatically it won't unblank on keyboard or mouse input. If I run 'setpci -s 00:02.0 F4.B=00' (as root) it will, but this is inconvenient. So I run 2.6.36 and try every new kernel in hopes that it will be fixed. I'm up to 2.6.39. I reported this to months ago; they decided it was fixed on February 2 (because it was identified as the same problem others had which, apparently, was fixed).

Has anyone a tip to integrate the functionality that setpci command provides into the unblank code?

Thanks for your attention.
