I came across this error while trying to figure out why the new X 4
power management was killing my login sessions (still unsolved). Turned
out it was fixed by small changes to XF86Config-4. You may not have the
same options, but I had some options in the ServerFlags that were
Option "BlankTime" "10"
Option "StandbyTime" "20"
Option "SuspendTime" "25"
Option "Offtime" "30"
Option "NoPM" "true"
made the problem go away. The "NoPM" told X not to use it's idea of
power management (the kernel/BIOS is already configured to do this, and
blanking/offtime still happen -- some kind of conflict I guess).
So, you might have some syntax problems.
