Are you using X 4 and does your monitor go into power saving mode?  I
noticed this very thing with DPMS in X 4.  However, it seemed to go away
with subsequent upgrades in Unstable.  If this is the case, you can try
this in /etc/X11/XF86Config-4

Section ServerFlags
  Option "NoPM" "true"

Seems there was a conflict between kernel/BIOS PM and X ???
