my computer enter in sleep or hibernate mode.
Then the X-server seems to crash taking 50% of the CPU (on a dual core 

I also figured out that simply closing my laptop (without entering the 
sleep mode) is

 From what it seems, this problem happens each time the screen flicker.
For instance, when I come back from the sleep mode, the X-server is still
functional for a couple of seconds. Then the screen flickers (the same 
way it does when you change
the resolution of the screen, I imagine that vista is doing some kind of 
screen resolution check)
and the X-server fails.

In case it is an issue related to the driver of my graphical card, I 
have a nvidia GeForce Go 7400 card
and the driver version is

Let me know if you need more information of testing. I cannot fix the 
problem myself, but I can help
identifying it and testing patches.
