I haven't had a problem on my F11 x86_64 laptop. I do run the closed Nvidia
driver. Are you running a closed driver? Maybe it is locking X, so see if you
can re-enable the CTRL-ALT-BKSP key to reset just X.

Also, do you have flash working properly or could that be an issue? I used the
following website to setup my fresh Fedora 11 install.
