Unhappy Curious behavior with 290.10 or is it a bug?

Scenario goes as follows:

I tested CentOS 6.2 x64 as well as Ubuntu 11.10 x64 each with 290.10 and it works fine with one relatively minor but very annoying problem, if my TV goes into Powersave / Standby (using it as screen - Toshiba 37XV733G connected via HDMI with Gainward GT240 1GB DDR3) upon turning the TV panel on - the whole screen is frozen, as in entirely - u can see everything fine however no mouse moves and nothing happens, only recourse is to forcefully reboot the system

How I found out that it must be a driver issue - simple - I tested both mentioned distros on the same machine however with the 275.43 driver - the above mentioned problem no longer exists and everything works as it should.

My question here: What significant changes have been made to the 290.10 branch to mess up everything once the screen turns off and is there any quickfix / workaround / Patch to make this problem go away with the 290.10 driver?

If there is some adittional info you may need about my system or setup, please do let me know.

Thx in advance

Pete

I can confirm this on 8600GT and 290.10 driver (it's fine with LTS driver) and Arch Linux (32-bit and 64). However, GTX 275 and GTX 570, on the same setup works good with both drivers series.

Monitor is connected via DVI, I've disabled monitor power saving features (Option "BlankTime" "0" Option "StandbyTime" "0" Option "SuspendTime" "0" Option "OffTime" "0" in xorg.conf). It's freezing after a couple of min. of inactivity.

Try also to disable X power features with these console commands:

Code:
xset dpms 0 0 0
xset -dpms
xset s off
And tell us the result.

On 8500GT with the 290.10 driver, using a dvi connection, if the monitor turns off (either by hitting the monitor power button or by dpms kicking in), the kernel crashes.
