Monitor power saving (seems to be a FAQ).
There are really 2 issues: getting X to do power saving, and getting
the text console to do power saving.
This is how I set all my consoles to all have powersaving enabled:
# File: /etc/rc.boot/0vc-powersave
# Turn on power-saving on the VC's
test -f /usr/bin/setterm || exit 0
echo -n "Turning power-saving on for VC's:"
for i in 1 2 3 4 5 6
setterm -powersave < /dev/tty$i
setterm -blank 15 < /dev/tty$i
echo -n " $i"
And this is how I get X to have powersaving enabled:
>From the end of my /etc/X11/xdm/Xsetup_0
xset dpms 600 900
The command used to be "xset s power...", so if you have an older
version of xset than I do then you might need the following instead:
# Turn on the builtin screensaver
xset s 480
# and set the monitor shutdown time
xset s power 900 900
That should do it.
