I have had similar problems with mandriva 2006 but I was attempting to 
shutdown while the frontend was running. The xserver would not respond to 
anything just a blank screen. I had to ssh into it and shutdown with -r 
option. No explanation to what was happening just make sure I close the 
frontend. My graphics card is a Nvidia fx 5600.
