I need to know how to manually turn the display on as this does not happen when I resume from a suspend. This is a laptop so it resumes from suspend every time I open the lid. It is painful to have to reboot Ubuntu every time I close the lid. I am trying to use the open Xorg driver. The proprietary fglrx driver works correctly on resume but has other problems. In particular the proprietary driver limits the maximum virtual display to 1600x1600, which is not enough to drive a 1080x1920 display such as a television set. VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI BeaverCreek [Mobility Radeon HD 6620G]
