    SubjectVGA blank causes hang with 2.4.18
      Hi, all. Here's a perverse problem: when the screen blanks (text
    console) with 2.4.18, the machine hangs. No ping response, no magic
    SysReq response. I didn't have this problem with 2.4.7.

    The command I used to configure screen blanking was:
    setterm -blank 10 -powerdown 0

    This is an Athalon 850 MHz on a Gigabyte GA-7ZM motherboard.

    I managed to waste a few hours chasing this, wondering why the machine
    hung a while after boot. Of course, I first blamed the jobs that were
    started on it soon after boot. Turns out the jobs are not to blame!
