Gnome Session ends randomly

Good Morning,

I have an odd issue with my gnome sessions. I will be working, surfing, etc and gnome will log me off. It happens randomly and also not when I'm in a certain application.

I looked in my syslog and I saw the following:


Mar 24 11:19:52 localhost gnome-power-manager: (mikee) DPMS blanking screen because the lid has been closed on ac power

Mar 24 14:22:41 localhost gnome-power-manager: (mikee) Turning LCD panel back on because laptop lid re-opened

I never did that. I found this:

There is a patch there. Even though I don't run nvidia or ATI, I have intel onboard do you think it would be an issue me loading this .deb?

I'm running edgy

Thanks all,

Out of desperation I upgraded to Feisty beta, and my issue has gone away. I'm really happy
