This has been the case at least since Tiger when I got my first Mac.

Sorry I didn't go further into detail about the first problem. This is not when the other display goes black when a movie is in full-screen mode. I'm saying that my primary display just goes black and the only way I know to get the screen working again is to put the computer to sleep and bringing it out of sleep mode, or to force-restart the computer.
