add the following lines to the Screen section of /etc/X11/XF86Config:
change values to suit your preference.
to the Device section.
this makes the power save settings global to the X server instead of
per session with xset, which i presume is what you are doing now.
don't know about gshutdown, what i did was make a windowmaker button
that runs /usr/local/bin/shutdown which is a script that exectutes
sudo shutdown -h now.
