I am using KMS with a Intel 915 card (on a Thinkpad X41 Tablet).
Closing and reopening the lid kills the LVDS until a reboot.

I can still fly blind (or log in over the network); and vbetool dpms

black. This happens both in X and outside of X (during boot for
example). This is not related to suspend/resume.

I posted a video of the bug at:

I would like to help resolve this bug so I can use my laptop again. Please help!
