    To get vsync in compiz 0.8.x you need to set the correct refresh rate and enable the vsync option in compizconfig-settings-manager. Vsync should be set to application-controlled in the control panel.

    Unfortunately, compiz follows a somewhat uncommon vsync method to improve performance. This works fine on nvidia but is somewhat flaky on fglrx. The 11.1 (final) release is supposed to fix this at last!

    That I know, that's why I stick to the base driver + ATI Tray Tools.

    That's caused by the player, in this case VLC, issuing `xset -dpms` to disable the screensaver. Disable vlc's disabling of the screensaver and it won't blank out. Hopefully AMD will find the root problem and fix it so I don't have to shake my mouse every 10 minutes during a movie
