    Since system specs were not identified, there may be other issues.

    Is your box actually locked up? Can you use Alt+Tab, Ctrl+Alt+Del or Ctrl+Esc? If so, I cant help much there.

    When you go S3 without MP open, does it ALWAYS come back with a screen?

    Can you do other things without the screen - like play music (you might need a hot key to do this or monitor hard drive activity or remote into the box)? This means your box is not really locked up.

    Do you have a nVidia video card? Are you hooking it up via DVI or HDMI to a TV (not a monitor)? If so, it seems that you may be experiencing an odd bug that nVidia has not fixed. I can explain more if that might be the case.
