Hi Warren,

No mouse pointer, nothing. The X process will be shutdown with a
ctrl-c or ctrl-alt-delete, but the screen remains blank, in "power
saver" mode.

Nothing I do makes any difference on the monitor.

> Try running X without an xorg.conf.

I've done that, and it works just the same. I saw your other message
about HALD and read your interesting link, aei.html. I disabled the
HALD and DBUS, and rebooted, tried again, but with the same results.

Thanks so much,
