I'm now quite sure it isn't my ATI card. When my laptop comes back up it hangs and nothing working (no blind root login or numlock LED). Question is: what else can it be. I've already tried it with almost all my daemons off and the result was the same. I'm going to try an vanilla kernel with no framebuffer. Hope it work then. Thanks for your help and time sofar.
