HOWTO - Toggle Monitor Off/On at X startup
I have a problem with my Lilliput. When X starts up, my monitor goes nuts. Toggling the power button fixes it.
Being lazy, I came up with the following fix.
Make sure power management is set up for your monitor in xorg.conf
Make a script called togglemonitor (probably should put it in /usr/local/bin)
Then in your Xsetup file (under something like /etc/kde3/kdm/Xsetup for KDM, I believe for xdm and gdm there is an equivalent)
/usr/X11R6/bin/xset dpms force off
/usr/X11R6/bin/xset dpms force on
Add the following line
Anyone else have this problem btw?
