Xorg log when I close the lid and boot

Description of problem:
It is impossible to install FC17 on my Ivy Bridge laptop without an external monitor attached or I install using the vesa driver.  Attempting to install without any special changes results in the laptop display flashing rainbow colors.

After installation, if I boot the machine with the laptop display enabled the laptop flashes as stated before. (External displays are unaffected.)  If I press the power button on my computer, close the laptop display, wait for it to boot and then open the display, everything is ok.

Ubuntu 12.1 and Windows 7 work fine on this same hardware.

The following is a snippet from the X11.0.log (full log attached):

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

How reproducible:
Always happens.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to install/run FC17 on an Ivy Bridge laptop.
Actual results:
Laptop Screen completely unusable.

Expected results:
Laptop Screen should be usable.
