Do you mean that when the screen saver puts the monitor in power save mode it won't come back, or does this happen while you are in the middle of using it? – mark4o Apr 10 '10 at 20:57
no the pc just stops working - in the middle of using it – Charles Faiga Apr 10 '10 at 21:04
Check the dmesg command, /var/log/messages, /var/log/Xorg.0.log. – mark4o Apr 10 '10 at 21:09
