Description of problem:
In 3.5.7, my ATI video card would power down after the elapsed time set in
GNOME screensaver. It does not power down in 3.6.1. The only change was the
kernel. Booting into the previous version resolves the issue.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always, at least on my machine.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot into 3.6.1.
3. Wait for idle time to elapse.
Screensaver blanks and locks screen, but does not shutdown monitor.
Screensaver blanks and locks screen, and shuts down monitor.
The only difference is booting between the two kernel versions. When booting the older kernel-3.5.6-1.fc17.x86_64, it works as expected. When booting the newer kernel-3.6.1-1.fc17.x86_64, it fails.

Are you still seeing this with 3.7.9 or 3.8.2 in updates-testing?
The issue was resolved in 3.6.4.
Thanks for letting us know.
