02/04/13 I made a full system update. When turned off my PC, I noticed that screen is turned off before the system is actually halted. Well, this didn't made me suspicious.
However, today I decided to make a full update with new KDE. I thought that it'd be rational to do it from the virtual console but pressing ctrl + alt + Fx causes my monitor to turn off. Have I missed something?

It's a known problem with the nvidia 304.84 driver; so update it to 304.88 and from some users' testimonies it should work again. (I use nouveau presently so I cannot say myself).
+1 on berbae's suggestion. I had this very problem and did a system upgrade this morning, which included the 304.88 driver. It now works.
