nv driver turns monitor off on X start

I just hooked a friend up with Debian and we failed to get his
nvidia card working. Using just the nv driver, X starts and has no
errors in the log, but the screen just blanks and the monitor goes
into sleep mode. The system remains responsive, I can SSH and
everything's fine again when we stop X. Using the vesa driver works
fine, but we want/need OpenGL!

Any clues?
