When I turn off my monitor, the X server freezes and stops updating output to monitors. When I power monitor up again, instead of screen see no signal HDMI. This is specific to DisplayPort --> HDMI, and specific to ASUS VH242HL 23" monitor.
Condition did not occur with DVI --> HDMI connection. Condition also does not occur power cycling of Sharp Aquos TV running on dual monitor setup. However, when powering up ASUS monitor in dual monitor setup, video freezes on last frame on second Aquos monitor. So I power cycle the ASUS and the picture on the Aquos stops on the last frame and is unresponsive. (Audio through separate sound card continues)
Freeze can be recovered by restarting xorg server ctrl-Alt-Backspace (twice).
Running OpenSuse 12.1 on AMD 64 (Phenom II). Video card is AMD ATI FirePRO 2270 with DMS59 connector. Problem occurs when using DMS59 adapter --> DisplayPort --> HDMI.
Have used catalyst ffglx recently troubleshooting HDMI audio but presently not installed. Using opensource ATI driver.
Issue makes DisplayPort --> HDMI unusable.
