Installed PCLinuxOS 2010.10 on a Toshiba Satellite recently. I was running PCLOS 2007 on it without issues for a looong time. Everything is working great, except one problem (a pretty big one). The screen goes to black after several minutes. This is while I'm working on the machine. So, I don't think it is a time out happening causing the screen to blank or power management kicking in. It is also running on AC power. Once the screen goes black I can't bring it back (errmm). I can't ctrl-alt-backspace to kill X either. Nor can I get to the tty text terminals (ctrl-alt-1, 2, etc). The only thing I can do is tap the power button. Once I do, the screen comes back and shows the PCLOS Bull as it shut down the system.
Tried running both the Vendor and Xorg driver for Intel 810 and later.
