Does the computer show activity? Maybe it's just monitor turning
itself off.

So, you admit that you are dumber than dog****, and all of your
retarded assessments about Linux AND other people over the years are as
bent as they could possibly get.

GOOGLE it. Damn!

It is part of the sound card.

He wants his hand held through all things not pointy clicky on his
computer.

I would say he learned from mommy, but the old fart is past that
problem. It's basic hard wired "do it for me" disease.

Thanks, yes, on key press, there is partial resume (I hear activity from
drives,
NumLock light comes ON, but monitor power light does not turn GREEN from
AMBER).
Can't tell what else is happening.

Also, a day or two ago, my old monitor died.
After installing the spare monitor, I get the following...

on bootup.

And, when I try to start the Catalyst Control Center,
I get the following...

Initialization error:

There was a problem initializing Catalyst Control Center Linux edition.
It could be caused by the following.

No ATI graphics driver is installed, or the ATI driver is not functioning

or configure using aticonfig.

I think I'd want to test control-alt-Fn or similar
and see if a console-like window appears. You can switch
between X and a set of terminal windows, using
some control-key combinations.

http://linux.about.com/od/linux101/l/blnewbie5_1.htm

CtrlAltFn (n=1..6)
Switch to the nth text terminal.

So something like CtrlAltF4 might work.

Using CtrlAltF7 takes you back to X. With
appropriate assumptions about whether the input
subsystem is running or not...

The other possibility, is video output is being
sent to the wrong output connector. Depending
on the video card, you might not have enough
interface types on the monitor, to test all
possible video card outputs (like the cards
with DisplayPort on them).

If the video driver has impedance sensing working,
then unplugging the monitor connector and plugging it
back in, should help the video subsystem notice
a monitor has been connected. But it doesn't guarantee
it will be driven immediately. I don't think any OS
flips to multi-monitor mode, just because a second or
nth monitor just appeared on the hardware interface.

Now, in the good ole days (my Unix youth), we used
to Telnet into black screen boxen, and see whats up.
But of course we can't have nice things now, so
no telnetd (via inetd) for you... In simpler times,
we could tunnel in, do some checking, and see whether
X was actually running or not. Go check the log for X
and so on.

Even "pinging" the broken computer, will help you
determine its running state. If it answers a ping,
then "it's alive", for some value of "alive".

I misspoke.
man xset

Turn Energy Star settings off:
xset -dpms (I failed in including the, "-," the first time)

Below is your problem. Energy Star is turning your monitor off:

Monitor is On

Also, a day or two ago, my old monitor died.


Another problem for a different thread?

Sorry, I misunderstood. I thought you wanted DPMS enabled.
Now I can't remember whether suspend was done before or after.
Probably before.
