Hash: SHA1

Package: xserver-xorg-video-ati
Version: 1:6.6.3-2
Severity: important


I have been having a problem that if I leave my system running idle for
over 30 minutes (best guess), it hangs completely.  I have attempted to
tracew it back and believe the problem may be with the Radeon Power
Management trying to turn off my monitor.  When I return to the machine,
it has a blank screen and will not wake up or allow me to switch to a
console.  I've tried accessing it from other machines via ssh, but it
does not respond.  It aslo does not respond to pings.  I have an ATI
RV380 [Radeon X600] card and use the free ati driver for it.  Attached
is my Xorg log.
