Default Re: monitor goes to sleep after startx

Has anyone else experienced this or found a solution? I assume it's something I've installed but I'm not sure what.

I'm using Gentoo linux and the onboard GeForce MX4 with nvidia-drivers-96.43.09.

It could have started around the time I installed nvidia-settings-180.22 but I've tried downgrading to 177.80 and the problem still occurs. Or maybe it was when I upgraded to linux 2.7.10. But that could be a red herring
You'd have better luck posting this (or having it moved to) the Linux section. Just to be a smartass, I'd have go say your monitor should stop having sex during POST...that always knocks me out, lol.
