Bug Description

Bug Report
Mint 13 using Cinnamon desktop.
First symptom
Leave the machine for half an hour and the screen goes blank. Mouse reactivates the screen and I put in the password and the screen goes blank for 15 seconds after which my desktop returns from where I left it. I wonder why it took 15 seconds on Mint 12 and 13 but not on Mint 9 and 11?
Second symptom
I tell it to power down after half an hour of inactivity and it does. It comes back to life after I hit the power on (or was tt reset button) and I sign in blank screen and after I guess 15 seconds I get the screen back and from the looks of it the wrong video driver was loaded. Same on Mint 12 but okay on 9 and 11. Other than that Mint 13 is okay.

I have Nvidai 8500GT video card and an Asus M2V-MX mother board with 4 Gig.
