|Ok, so, I've taken up a personal vendeta against an apparently ppc-only bug in xorg.
The bug causes the DPMS mode (solid white/black/red/yellow/*colour screen) to show up when changing to a virtual terminal with Control + Alt + f1 through f6, and it is possible to get out of this mode, and back to the X enviornemnt with Control + Alt + f7. The same solid screen shows up when you kill xorg (such as when the system shuts down).
I'm still trying to figure what exactly is causing it, so I'm asking for input. If you would be so kind as to reply (it would make simple geek very happy!) , and include the following :
*If you are affected
*What type of mac you have.
*Your video card.
*Your version of xorg
*Your kernel version.
