Description cshihpin 2000-06-12 09:06:18 UTC
XFree_Mach64-3.3.6-20 powers off my DPMS monitor
on exit and I cannot recover the console no
matter what I do. The machine is alive and well
and can be telnetted to from another machine.

If I type startx again from the command line
(blindly of course)
the X desktop appears again and the monitor
wakes up. lspci shows that card is
ATI 3D Rage LT Pro AGP-133.

Earlier versions of the Mach64 server work with
no problems.

power saving can be notoriously flakey.  We recommend that you disable power
saving if you are experiencing problems.
