Does your system "go to sleep" when it is idle ?

Sometimes, my pvrs (1x 500 and 1x 150) produce only garbage after resuming 
from suspend.

Stopping the backend-daemon, un- and reload the ivtv-drivers and restart the 
backend-daemon usually solves the problem (and as I have plans to move to 
other hardware and upgrade the system, currently Kubuntu 8.04 and MythTV 
0.21, I didn't look after a better "solution" yet).
