The lines

        disable FP1

at the end of Xorg.0.log indicate something is telling the X driver to
put the monitor into DPMS power saving mode. It's not clear what that
is, but it looks like it might be some kind of daemon such as
gnome-power-manager or maybe upower or something HAL related. Does the
problem also occur if you start some kind of failsafe session instead of
your normal one?

BTW, any particular reason why you have acpid installed? There's no ACPI
on PowerMacs.
