The more I use gentoo the more I think I did something(s) wrong.  When I 
log into gnome every time I get a message stating something like "I have 
detected a panel already running.  Exiting now"  The only guess I had 
was I had more than one gnome-panel installed, but no, I do not

Next is xscreensaver.  I don't know where the menu item for it went, I 
used to have it.  but I read the man page and found the command 
xscreensaver-demo, which brought up the gui for it.  However when I 
tried to adjust the time it took for my screen to blank out, (since I 
can not get it to come back on sometimes) my screen blanked and my 
keyboard became unresponsive.  By this I mean I had just put num lock on 
and the light for it was on and wouldn't turn off.  I tried caps lock, 
and that was off and wouldn't go on.

So I hit the reset button and started up and ran xscreensaver-demo 
again, but this time I changed something else ( I think just the 
screensaver) and it blanked the screen and became unreactive again.

Well I managed to disable it through the gui after it blanking and 
restarting twice more, but I would like to know if anyone has any idea 
what's causing it, or how I would find out.
