to save alot of trouble here is how i got it working:

        setterm -blank 10
        setterm -powerdown 30

i put that in a script in /etc/init.d and it works quite well.

i do have apm compiled in, but only the poweroff at shutdown turned
on.  if it makes a difference i don't know.  (im not sure why i even
bother with that powerdown thing, i have not rebooted my machine in
105 days much less shutdown...)
