2. Close your laptop screen
3. Open your laptop screen

Since this bugzilla report was filed, there have been several major updates in various components of the Xorg system, which may have resolved this issue. Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade their system to the latest version of their packages. For packages from updates-testing repository you can use command

yum upgrade --enablerepo='*-updates-testing'

Alternatively, you can also try to test whether this bug is reproducible with the upcoming Fedora 12 distribution by downloading LiveMedia of F12 Beta available at http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/nightly-composes/ . By using that you get all the latest packages without need to install anything on your computer. For more information on using LiveMedia take a look at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraLiveCD .

Please, if you experience this problem on the up-to-date system, let us now in the comment for this bug, or whether the upgraded system works for you.

If you won't be able to reply in one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.

Comment 9 Matěj Cepl 2009-11-17 07:59:17 EST
Reporter, do you have SELinux enforcing (/usr/sbin/getenforce would tell you)? Do you see any SELinux complaints (the yellow star in the status bar)?

Do you see any SELinux complaints (the yellow star in the status bar)? 
I cannot say if I see anything in the status bar, because an other bug switch off my screen when I close the lid and I do not know how to switch it on again is there any log file I can read?
Comment 11 Pierre Blavy 2009-11-17 11:33:59 EST
I've tryed 
su -
setenforce 0
The bug is fixed.

So that's a Selinux problem. 
I'll switch off selinux as a workaround until fixed. Thank you very much.
