    Hey all,

    I just replaced my Windows XP OS with Redhat 9, and so far
    it's working pretty darn well. I also have CrossOver Office
    for running the few MS apps I need, and even that seems
    pretty darn good.

    I am only having one problem that is really irking me. When
    I leave the machine alone for, say, 10 minutes. I typically
    come back to instead of the screen saver, a blank screen.
    Keyboard and mouse activity fail to wake it, and I am forced
    to reboot the machine.

    It never locks up on me while I am at the machine, only when
    I leave it alone for 10 minutes or so.

    It is a very generic Pentium machine, and I have also turned
    off any power management stuff I could find in the bios.

    Any ideas?

    I am loving running Redhat because we have FreeBSD servers
    to do various services for our supporters and it works so
    well with them, I'd probably have to be hospitalized if I
    were forced to go back to Windows... *shudder*
