Default Laptop HP Compaq 6710b suspend problem


I'm using a Laptop HP Compaq 6710b running Fedora 8 with kernel

When I suspend the laptop, and press the power button to revive it, the
screen backlight stays turned off. I.e. I can see that something is on
the screen but it's very dark.

I've tried uncommenting the lines in /etc/acpi/events/video.conf:

action=/usr/sbin/vbetool dpms on
but this didn't help.

I've got a workaround: when I press Ctrl-Alt-F1 to go to a virtual
console and then use Alt-LeftArrow to go to X again, the screen returns
to its normal status.

Any idea how I can get this automatically working?
