T43P LCD keeps going dark

\015 LCD goes dark intermittently making the machine practiacally useless. In Linux I can go to another screen and coming back to X I get the lcd working for a while, then it goes away again and I have to do the ctl+alt+F# dance all over again. In Windows when it goes away I have to reboot! .githogori.\015

Answers :

I think you are having problem with backlight. The concept of laptop is that if there is problem with backlight then it will try to shut it down(shut the light down).If you restart your laptop ,that mean you turn the light on again...after that if its blink or something wrong then again your system will try to shut it down to prevent other part get spoil.
