Default Any help appreciated.....

Ok, heres what I got:
Mandrake 10.1 PowerPack
p2p-1.3.3-1
cedega-4.3.1
nVidia 6629 drivers
FX5900XT


Ok, HL2 and Source games run great, BUT when I exit the game, all I get is a black screen and a big fat mouse pointer.
It isnt locked up, cause I can alt+F2 type konsole, su to root init3 then init 5, thought that would work, but I have to reboot to get hardware acceleration working again.

Any ideas what I might do to get the games to exit properly, or to get whatever still has a hold of the video to let go?????????


Thanks in advance



EDIT:
Appears to be in the wrong forum, sorry...... Perhaps a mod could move it.....

Is there something with "NVRM: Xid" after your screen goes black in your dmesg output?
(check it in the "konsole")
