My netbook running 11.10 ubuntu goes to sleep after 10 minutes of inactivity as per settings. After the screens dims, I cannot get the backlight to come back on. I can see the faint text of the screen. Any clues?

This question is really a bug report, and as such is off-topic, thanks! – James Mar 29 '12 at 12:33

There is already a bug report on Launchpad for your problem and I think that it should be solved soon; if you can't wait, there are some tricks suggested in the comments of that bug.
