Hi I emailed a few days ago about an issue with dpms and xrandr, well
xrandr was solved perfectly, but i am still having an issue with dpms.
when i blank my laptop screen it very often causes my machine to hard
lock, but not every time, just over whelming majority.

I am running
X Window System Version 1.3.0
xrandr 1.2.2
git checkout of intel drivers as of a few days ago
thinkpad x30 with 1.0.9 bios
intel i810

If there is not a fix available or some way to deal with it, is there
a way i can force dpms to off, i tried dpms false in xorg and it did
not seem to work.
