Does anyone have a problem where the monitor blacks out after ... x idle

management by default but nothing is turned on. I've noticed this problem
ever since KDE 3.2 in Sarge.

It's xfree86 that turns it off without KDE knowing about it. I don't know how to make it stop. If you find out, please tell me. :)

  Disabling it in Control Center -> Power Control -> Display Power
  Control -> UNCHECK "Enable display power management" *should* work.

  After applying, xset q | grep DPMS should answer Disabled. If not, try
  "xset -dpms".


Indeed. I ran "xset q | grep DPMS" and it was enabled. The funny thing is, inside the control center, it was NEVER checked. I guess when KDE got upgrade to 3.2, this happened but to resolve this issue, I just checked "Enable display power management" and hit OK. I then went back to uncheck it. After that, I ran that previous xset command again to make sure it was disabled. Thanks for the help.
