I have a Toshiba tecra M2 laptop running suse 10.2 with nvidia binary blob
1.0-9631 (Hey, I want good graphics performance OK?) and it works better than
any previous distro, with sound and wireless all good, and it plays quake 3
arena quite nicely.

I've had it running for many days now, and when it blanks, if keyboard or
mouse response doesn't unblank it, simply closing and opening the laptop lid
unblanks it immediately.
