    it was working very very nice ...
    until 3 days ago ...i suffered form " BLACK SCREEN SUDDENLY APPEARS ..like if its in sleep mode ...BUT NOT RESPONDING TO MY KEYBOARD ORDERS !!!
    AND I ALSO FOUND , that when i close the lid ...IT DOESNT GO TO SLEEP " although this option is checked in the "power management preferences" and it was working very fine in the previous versions of ubuntu ...
    AND the screensaver...JUST WORK FINE ...BUT SHOW A BLANK SCREEN RATHER THAN THE USUAL IMAGES !!!

    What version of Ubuntu are you using?

    I have the screen saver issue too - sort of. It works most of the time but once in a while just goes black. Usually I just open the screen saver menu in preferences and select preview again (even though it is already selected) and it works. You could use the terminal: sudo gconf-editor and make sure everything is configured correctly.

    by the way... i noticed that all this issue occured after updating ..and i think the update included the screensaver and gnome-power-manager ....
    well....should i remove both and reinstal them or either substitute them ??????
