I have had the FR go into blank screen a number of times and refuse to
wakeup.  Its not suspended as usb networking still works.  Trying to
restart the xserver hangs.  If I press the power button briefly, nothing
happens.  Same if I hold it for a second or two.  At ~ 10 seconds it
will shutdown - sometimes.

Is this a bug or is there some other way to get the screen back without
a time consuming reboot.
