[CentOS] Waking up X

I just finished installing CentOS 5 (again)... and I'm having trouble
with my X config (I _think_).

If I 'startx' then switch to a console (using CTRL+ALT+F*) and then
back to X (CTRL+ALT+F7), 1/2 the time it comes back, the other half I
get a black screen and I can never recover the session.

X is still running (CTRL+ALT+Backspace kills it) but there seems to be
some type of power saving or screensaver that kicks in and won't let
the session restore...

Any hints on where to look?  The X logs don't _seem_ to show anything...
