Description Tomas Jamrisko 2011-08-09 10:08:30 UTC
Description of problem:

Running a fullscreen openGL application causes secondary monitor to shut down (which is expected) but exiting the application doesn't turn the monitor back on (which is not expected)
-- observed on intel and nouveau drivers

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run a fullscreen openGL application (such as extremetuxracer)
2. (secondary monitor should be powered off by now) 
3. Exit the application
Actual results:

Secondary monitor is turned off

Expected results:

Secondary monitor is turned on

Additional info:

Probably isn't a problem in this component but it's pretty close (monitor can be powered on through gnome-display-properties), so -- sorry
