Here's the relevant portion of my /etc/X11/XF86Config file:

Section "Device"
    Identifier  "Viper V330"
    VendorName  "Diamond Multimedia"
    BoardName   "Viper V330 4MB PCI"
    option	"power_saver"

Note that I'm happy with the default values for the standby, suspend and off
timers so I never tried to change them.
