What this *might* be is something other than energy saving... if XF86Setup
starts an X server for you that has horizontal and vertical refresh rates
that are outside the range of your monitor, the monitor says "I don't
think so" and turns itself "off". When this happened to me, my monitor
displayed a message "refresh out of range" and gave the correct refresh
rate ranges to use. 

When you set the refresh rates in the configure-r (configurator?) be sure
they are the actual ranges for your monitor and not just generic ones.
These ranges should be in your monitor manual.
