It happened when I started up X.

ME, I'm a raw newbie at this.  I don't even know where
my make stuff is.

About a month ago, someone helped me add the RH box to
my home network.  He changed the default screen
resolution in: etc/X11/XF86Config-4 and later changed
it back.  That is the only X related changes I am
aware of.

I've changed it to no screensaver.  Perhaps after this
settles down, I will experiment with other settings.
