RE: LCD Panel goes black randomly on KDE 3.3

Is the screen actually going into powersaving mode, or is it being painted in black pixels?

Have you timed it to see if this "blackout" happens at the same time, every time?

Sounds like either a screensaver setting or a power saving setting of the laptop itself.
