Hey i recently just did a clean install of Lion, because Voodoo kexts were causing a problem. I have finally got everything working, however now when i put it to sleep, when i got to wake it up, either one monitor (VGA connection) will freeze with strange black and grey pattern, or it will resume, and then freeze, and everything will go insane (bits of images from the screen following the cursor. I have my i7 2600k over clocked to a stable 4.3 if this makes any difference. I also have two monitors connected. I cannot figure out what is causing this, any help would be great, thanks :)

I also had that problem and eventually figured it out. It is because the default Energy Saver setting chooses "Wake on Network Access" and it causes your computer to wake up every 2 hrs ( you can check it in console "Wake Reason RTC ") and all hardwares can't be remounted correctly . I think it is also kind of semi wake up .
So in my case , I just uncheck Wake on NEtwork Access and my machine never wakes up/sleeps until I forcefully wake up. And now my web cam is okay . The webcam mic is okay . If not, I have to restart my machine to get my webcam working properly. Let me know if it is also a fix for your case. I am curious.

mmm i tried both options, no change, i wake up from sleep and the one screen either half wakes up ( half the screen) or both wake up and then everything freezes.

Can you copy-paste the last lines you get in the console.app when it happens?
