i am having a problem with one of my computers and the monitor... it use
to power off and now it no longer does on F10..
suspend seems to work but the screen is still on, just blank.. i am
using powerdevil and also tried kde display and gnome display settings
as well... i know that the ati hd2600 supports powerplay as this worked
in F8 and is also noted on ati website... powering off the display
works with an nvidia card but not the ati...
i've googled a bunch but can't seem to find an answer... help would be
$ aticonfig --lsp

$ aticonfig --pplib-cmd "get activity"
