Maybe dpkg-reconfigure xorg will help? iirc, there was an LCD question

I don't know anything about ServerFlags.
DPMS is on: ~$ grep DPMS /etc/X11/xorg.conf
My dpms settings are handled by xscreensaver ($ xscreensaver-demo).
Also, I sometimes call this from a script in ~/bin when not wanting to
wait for xscreensaver to kick in:
xset -display :0.0 dpms force suspend
this also seems to work to reset everything to restore proper
xscreensaver preferences after using mplayer, etc.
Hope this helps,
