Ok, listen to this ;-)

I think DPMS might be very related, because when I suspend from X and
resume again everything is (almost) fine!!

1. I start up the machine
2. startx
3. I enter S1 either by acpiconf / closing the lid / ctrl-esc (sleep key)
4. Screen goes to console and stays on
5. I resume with power key / open lid
6. Screen turns black
7. Few seconds later X is in front of me again!
8. If I now go back to the console (ctrl-f1) the console is still black

I also tried the scenario where I suspend on the console, then resume
again, which turns the screen black. I then startx again and my screen is
back again. This is a major step IMHO.

I already looked at the DPMS code in X and we have to extract that
