I have several displays, all made by Sony, but some branded Dell, that
have unacceptably long warmup times coming out of sleep mode. On some
systems, POST completes and boot is well along before I can see what's
going on. Having to wait as long do to some arbitrary period of
inactivity isn't acceptable either. I suppose what I really need are
some short monitor extension cables that have no continuity on the pins
for DPMS and DDC, as SUSE is not the only OS causing this problem.
