[ubuntu] Crash after closing the monitor and opening

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi all, I have Ubuntu 9.10 running on Lenovo T61. I am running it from external HD. When I close the laptop monitor and then open it, the PC would enter sleep mode and if I try to power it up, it would either crash or would not let me go beyond credential page. Is it normal?
