Yes, I hadn't forgotten that, and I know what I have said doesn't help you much.

I just thought it would be worth mentioning that in my particulalr case, it looks like it could well have been the ATi drivers that were to blame. I haven't changed any other power management settings, so it seems more than coincidence. There are very few articles about giving any positive solutions to this issue, so thought it would be worth mentioning in case it helped somebody else in the same predicament.
