That has never worked for me.
When I do have a 'black-screen-of-death' then closing the lid does not cause the sleep light to come on, and opening has no effect.

Of course, if there were occassions when shutting the lid did in fact circumvent the problem then they wouldn't count as 'black-screen-of-death' crashes. So maybe I have just forgotten those occasions.

The same logic applies to this hint - since the machine recovered I cannot be sure that it was this technique that saved it. But maybe it will do someone some good.
