11.10 Dual monitor waking up from "screensaver" hangs.
Ubuntu 11.10, Gnome 3. I have a Dell Latitude with NVidia card, but am using the nouveau driver because it works better with dual monitors (but that's another story)... After I ctrl-shift-l to put the monitors blank, and later move my mouse or hit a key to attempt to get the login prompt, I have one monitor refresh--sort of--and the other monitor stays blank, and my system hangs. I have to do a hard reboot to recover. A workaround is to uninstall the gnome screensaver and install the xscreensaver, but the login prompt for xscreensaver is just ugly. I'd rather have just the blank screen, if it worked. Anyone know of a fix?
