I have a ThinkPad T520 with Intel 3000 Video, an openSUSE 11.4 install running
tumbleweed and KDE 4.7.1.

By and large, it's a fabulous combination. However, I also use an external
monitor frequently, and instead of letting the laptop sit idle consuming power
for hours on end, I will typically suspend-to-RAM the laptop. This works very
well! However, upon return, the displays (both of them) remain dark. This
*only* happens when I am using the external monitor when I put the laptop to
sleep. The only fix is to control-alt-backspace a few times to kill X, at which
point things return to normal. Console does not work either.

On a related note, what might be the best way to hook a *user* process into
return-from-suspend. If I could hook into dbus somehow such that a user process
was run upon return-from-suspend, I could fix this with xrandr (in the short
term - this is not a real fix).
