I am running X on a Lenovo w500 laptop using the integrated intel video hardware because it uses less battery than the fancy graphics adapter. I never do CAD or fancy demanding graphics, so I opted for the long battery life instead. The graphics hardware is:

Code:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)
00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)


I run multiple X servers on this machine, and switch between them with alt-F7 thru alt-F11. After an update to the X hardware driver last summer, this mode switching caused about a 3 second delay with a balck screen when I was using an external VGA monitor. The internal laptop screen switched instantly.

After updates this wekend, which included a bunch of Xorg stuff, including the driver, my external VGA monitor now switches instantly again.

Thanks for fixing this! It was an annoyance for several months. :) :D :mrgreen:
