It sounds like you've been hit by a variant of the bug caused by the latest xorg-x11-server-Xorg update, which is effecting using of Intel graphics and compiz ('Desktop effects').

There is discussion and a workaround method involving a downgrade of the package responsible here: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=229898

More details, and some alternative workarounds here:
Asus Eee PC 901, 2GB RAM, 20GB SSD + 16GB SDHC w/ Fedora 11
HTC Hero w/ Android 1.5 (MoDaCo Custom ROM 2.2e)
