For my part, I have MDK 8.1's original kernel and used nVidia's MDK8.1 RPMs directly. No power saving except for the screen.

As for /var/log/messages, in one occasion all the information before the crash is garbled (appears as a newline in some text editors, as a series of ^@^@^@ in some pagers). In another occasion, there's a bunch of errors following the X server crash until the final crash. They would be too long to list here, but here are interesting lines first line is the X server crash:

However I'm no expert and can't tell much from this.
