I don't know if I will be able to help, but perhaps answers to the following
questions will identify things to try:
Does this problem always occur after bringing your netbook out of standby?
In addition to the blank, blue screen, do you see the mouse cursor?
What is the timeline like? How many seconds or minutes pass until the first
flicker? How many flickers are there? How long is it until the screen shows
Is there anything in `.xsession-errors`? (This file is in the home directory of
the account that you are logged in as.)
