Bug Description

This option was present in 11.04, but was deleted in 11.10. The option is essential (at least for me), when using fglrx drivers on my laptop, because both suspend and hibernate freeze the entire machine and reset is the only option then. I can only choose "Do nothing", but "Blank screen" will at least save me some power when on battery.

See also bug 871047, the equivalent for locking the screen.
