getting the screen to suspend/turn off: the sage continues

I wrote a week or so ago about getting the screen to suspend/turn off.
Many replies (correctly) said to use 'Option "power_saver"' in XF86Config.
Within 5 minutes, I had it working. The problem is, I haven't been
able to get it to work since! The one thing different from many that
posted is that with my system I have to use 'xset s noblank' to even
get the screensaver to kick in (otherwise only the cursor disappears).
Also, the screensaver won't work if 'xset s noexpose' is used.
Using SuspendTime and OffTime don't make a difference. There aren't
any other options to play with. Has anyone else had problems like this?

The system uses an ATI Mach64 CT if that matters.

P.S. Just to head this one off, there have been no other screensavers active
since the last reboot.
