Appearance of Sudden White Screen

I have been using Debian 6 Operating System, Kernal Version 2.3.2 with DirectFB, XORG installed. When my system boots i gets EDID Invalid error message.

Moreover when the system is left Idle, after few hours display turns white but all the process are running properly. and I can able to switch between terminals and view the contents in it.

Only my GUI goes blank.

I have tried by disabling kernel mode settings, Configuring GRUB and adding by Option "useEDID" "false" Option "IgnoreEDID" "1" tot xorg.conf but its of no use.

Can any one suggest a solution for this problem.?

When System Boots "useEDID" false and "IgnoredEDID" are being Skipped as per Xorg.0.log.

There was something about pcie_aspm as a kernel boot option affecting video. Maybe google that for your kernel version. Check it's not a screensaver that's doing it!
