my Linux is currently suffering form a "strange" behavior.
Booting Mint results in a black screen (without cursor) going to "Power saving mode" eventually. Strange is that this happens only when the PC has been powered off some time (e.g. over night).
After rebooting (resetting) my machine three or four times (sometimes pressing escape during boot don't know if this changes anything) the cursor shows up and shortly after the desktop is working fine again. Reboots are now not causing any problems.
Overall I have the feeling that my Mint is booting quite slow and shuting down slow as well (compared to Win7). On my old machine Mint is faster than Windows.
Windows 7-64Bit works fine right from the first boot. My guess is that my Wlan card causes this problem but I it is only a guess
I have attached a bootlog and syslog up to the point where I have to press the reset button. (at least I think these logs are correct
EDIT: Today first boot went without complication, problem seems to appear sporadically...
EDIT2: I think the problem is that my display (Eizo EV2436W) is connected with the display port to the on-board graphics Intel HD4000.
I found similar descriptions like http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=658662
The problem occured also having linux running and turning of the display for some hour, turning it back on it has gone straight to power saving mode (again had to reset my running system). So there seems to be some sort of "discharge" going on when the display power is cut??? But to my understanding "power saving mode" should be entered only when no input signal is going into the display. Does the graphics card (HD4000) cut the signal when the monitor is powered off temporarily?
