Bug Description

In Ubuntu 10.04 once i lock the screen and turn off the monitor and let the computer sit until it becomes idle the computer will lock up and not display the login screen after either keyboard or mouse activity (the mouse cursor will be displayed and move but there is nothing but a black backdrop. To resolve this problem the computer has to be turned off and back on.

Hi Tom,

This bug was reported against an earlier version of Ubuntu, can you
test if it still occurs on Lucid?

Please note we also provide technical support for older versions of
Ubuntu, but not in the bug tracker. Instead, to raise the issue through
normal support channels, please see:

If you are the original reporter and can still reproduce the issue on
Lucid, please run the following command to refresh the report:

  apport-collect 570443

If you are not the original reporter, please file a new bug report, so
we can work with you as the original reporter instead (you can reference
bug 570443 in your report if you think it may be related):

If by chance you can no longer reproduce the issue on Lucid or if you
feel it is no longer relevant, please mark the bug report 'Fix Released'
or 'Invalid' as appropriate, at the following URL:

boot again. kept saying files were missing and corrupt. i'm just gonna
have to reload the OS. I will be glad to help you out if this problem
occurs with this next attempt at Ubuntu,
