I'm wondering if this is KDE's fault. I don't have the 8.2 beta that had 
KDE 4.5.3 on it but I have noticed that the behavior of 4.5.3 and 4.5.4 
is different...even a bit buggy. For example, when in the Screen Saver 
settings, if I select a different screen saver and it appears in the 
preview window---if I hit the Test button, I can see the preview window 
and the full-screen screen saver running simultaneously. It's almost a 
tearing / overlay effect. Didn't see it happen with 4.5.3, it was 
smooth. I looked but I didn't see much that's changed in 4.5.5 in terms 
of regressions. Could just be the sucky Intel driver I'm stuck using. 
:-)   I digress.

I tried to replicate it again today but no dice. Maybe it was just a 
one-off event. I'll keep trying. *IF* it does crap out, is there a log I 
should look at?

Doubtful but I wonder if it's related to: 
Maybe that's related to S1 and S3 states and not wake-up events 
triggered by mouse or keyboard. I'm not expert. <shrug> Looks like some 
important fixes went into 8.2 RC2. We'll see what happens.
