works at first boot-up (sleeps after 20 minutes) then quits working (never goes to sleep) after running an application/utility/update/etc.

keeps working properly if you don't run anything. May keep working if you run some things and not others but most of the time it quits after running anything.

I confirm this on Intrepid, Hardy, Gutsy, and Feisty. I've been having a hard time searching for this problem on the Internet. I use an nvidia 7600GS with and LG LCD over the DVI port, also using TwinView with a television connected to the S-video out. The LG goes to sleep the first time after reboot, but then never turns off again after running applications.
