Default laptop gray screen when screen comes back after turn off

I have a toshiba satellite pro m10 with a geforce4 go 420 card.
Under Ubuntu 6.04 using 8178 nvidia drivers when the screen turns on after auto-turnoff it is entirely gray and then fades into black.

Attached is an nvidia-bug-report and here is my xorg.conf file

# /etc/X11/xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the /etc/X11/xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man /etc/X11/xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

Anything I can do/disable to minimize this problem at all?

P.S. Do you want a third year computer science student at University of Toronto with absolutely no driver writing experience to help bug fixing? Just a thought.
