      Dano,

      Have you noticed if the new nVidia driver causes visible flickering of your
      screen after you've used Fn + D to blank the screen and have then unblanked
      the screen ?

      Thanks, John

      (Sorry - no idea about the DPMS problem)

          I have no problem. Everything is just what it is before Fn + D.
          BTW, my LCD is 1025x768, not 1400x1050. I have read that someone with
          LCD resolution of 1400x1050 encount this problem.

          I think
          http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php?s=67230f550090c64135fa6c05c97d450e&forumid=14
          is a good place for nvidia driver questions.
