F15, Intel, External display(s) only - anyone?

I'm trying to determine if this combination is viable:

* Lenovo T520 with Sandy Bridge GPU
* Fedora 15 (or 16) 32-bit
* External display as only display

Is this working for anyone? I'm considering tagging this BZ for
inclusion in the CommonBugs wiki area since there seem to be a lot of
reports that look similar (see my comment [1] to this effect).

If this is working for you, did you do anything special? I am right now
unable to use Fedora 15 to boot my system in an external-display-only
mode without signficant fooling around at runtime (switching modes,
etc). Additionally, once the system puts the external display to sleep
(which seems to happen after at most 1 hour, no way to disable this), it
will never return until I start mode switching again.

I'm very frustrated but trying to DoTheRightThing here and make sure
enough info is provided on the right BZs. Alas, not much traction.
