I tried quite a few things to fix this on my T23, and wound up having in /etc/sysctl.conf: hw.acpi.reset_video=0 hw.syscons.sc_no_suspend_vtswitch=1 and in /boot/loader.conf: acpi_ibm_load-"YES" hint.psm.0.flags="0x3000" vesa_load="YES" VESA may or may not be relevant; it seemed to help here. Getting screen restoration through suspend/resume, from either X or vty, was my goal. > > I searched the net a found an older thread from another FreeBSD-User, > > posted to this mailing list.

Can't help with that. I'll look through these later; if your conf was autodetected it's a bit different to mine. I just added stuff from a config given on the FLCL, and may have some refresh rates and such non optimal, but it's been working ok on 6.1-R here. Hope the above helps with the blank screen problem. Caveat: my T23's still running an ancient BIOS and EC that can't be updated until I find an external USB floppy drive - or go mad and install Windows or freedos? to get that done - which might also be relevant.
