Default A simple(?) request.

Not a bug just a request.

Recently my machine started exhibiting an odd issue. I'd just be doing normal things and *poof* both monitors would shut off. Checking all the logs I could find no issue that would be causing this and a hard reboot cured the problem for a little bit.

Then I happened to open the nvidia settings thing and while going through that I noticed that the thermal monitor was hovering 1 line below the red zone. Ah... I thought maybe it's shutting itself off as it's getting to hot.

Sure enough, next time it did it, I pulled the cover off and used some 'dust off' to cool the card off and *poof* monitors switched back on.

Now for the request:
Can the driver spit something out to a log somewhere when it does this? (I'm thinking the X server log would be logical...)

Default Re: A simple(?) request.

Have you tried starting the X server manually with startx -- -logverbose 6 ?
