Thinkpad with 90k. Close the lid and X is gone. No virtual terminals, nothing. Very frustrating. Happens with fluxbox or gnome. Is there anything I can do with /etc/X11/xorg.conf to prevent this from happening? 90k on the office workstation works a dream.

You mean it goes into sleep and you can't wake it up? If you don't want it to go to sleep you can just take that out. See /etc/acpi/*

Code:
 cat /etc/acpi/events/video.conf
# Configuration to turn on DPMS again on video activity, needed for some
# laptops. Disabled by default, uncomment if your laptop display stays blank
# after you close and open the lid.

event=video.*
action=/usr/sbin/vbetool dpms on

I had the same issue, my laptop had that happen to it on Thursday at the Blag meet when I left it for a while.
I uncommented those lines and cured that problem, thanks guys :)
