Default Re: crazy colors! 100.14.09 with 8600m on macbook pro

I got the macbook to s2ram by unloading stuff like alsa and the madwifi modules. If I'm not in X the screen stays blank, ignoring vbetool stuff, and starting X also does not work. From X, I have to switch to console and back to X to get the display working again. But.

"Sometimes" the terminals feel very slow after resuming from s2ram. When I try to restart X, the server hangs, I get a blinking cursur on an empty screen(probably tty7 where the server starts) and I'm unable to change to open consoles.

I'm also not sure if power management works. I unloaded all other modules except for usb and ethernet and shut off the display with "xset dpms force off". Still, it seems I do not get much more than 2-2.5 hours.
