Solution for me: new install WITHOUT proprietary stuff checked, (sudo apt-get remove b43-fwcutter bcmwl-kernel-source,) sudo apt-get install b43- fwcutter firmware-b43-installer, reboot

But to find the correct solution/commands ... oh dear!

now I only need to find solution (ubuntu14) why the computer keeps running but shows only a black screen after the screensaver hit after selected time. As soon as the screen blanks there is no reaction to mouse/keyboard/anything but the power button?
(and I thought Linux is user/noob friendly )
Sounds like it's going into a suspended state. Anything in the logs?
