I too am having the same problem on my Dell D610 Laptop. It's got the Intel chipset (Intel 945 GM) and the blanking only occurs on my external monitor. The laptop display does not. I run primarily with my laptop lid closed and use only my external monitor. I have tried running with the laptop lid open to see if the problem goes away but it does not. I'm running openSUSE 11 and even configured my video driver to use the I810 driver (which has proven to be more stable for other issues) and to no avail... It happens with or without the desktop effects enabled too.
Has anyone found a work around to this annoying issue?
It happens in CX 6 and I'm trying CX 7 and it still happens (realizing this is a video driver issue but thought I'd put it out there anyway).
Hmm, I am afraid that this is a limitation in CrossOver. Currently our d3d implementation does have dual monitor support, and strange things happen if two monitors are active at the same time. I don't know how your setup is exactly. Are you using both monitors, or does X see only one? If it is the former case, I think you've hit a driver bug, otherwise it's most likely CrossOver's fault.
Well, I'm only using one display right now - the laptop lid is closed. I'm using openSUSE 11.0 and I went into SAX to ensure that I didn't have "Dual Monitors" activated and it's not. What info can I provide you to help facilitate any issue resolution?

CrossOver Forums: the place to discuss running Windows applications on Mac and Linux
We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
