Putting xset -dpms s off in /etc/X11/Xsession does work while the user is
However once the user logs out the xdm login screen appears and settings
revert back to default.
If xset is the answer, where to I put it so that xdm will read it when
"NO user is logged in." That is before a user logs in and after user logs out.
