Fun just doesn't stop...

Ok we have documented the modeller freeze bug in one post, now I'll add another "unproductive" bug.

Anyone with an ADC LCD monitor i.e Apple/Formac brand now experience random screen turn off's.
In me typing this post my monitor for no reason at all switches off from the power button, just twice in 3 minutes.
its unpredicable and really pisses me off.
i thought it was just a formac bad monitor but i have read documentation from ATI with Apple LCD's screens blacking out with 9000 cards.
It is definetly an ADC problem and not DVI as my friend isnt getting this prob with his DVI formac.
Hence this tech note states Apple CRT ADC monitors, but it is documanted t0o happen to LCD ADC's now!
ATI tech notes (http://www.ati.com/support/infobase/4125.html)


So for now nvidia cards seem like less trouble.
I blame for this problem the Apple/ATI drivers from 10.2.5, as this problem wasnt there with the OEM System disk with my DP1.25.




I'm an ATI guy, I hope they stomp these bugs in the next update.:)
