Questions about r128 server

I should probably be asking these on newbie or xpert, but as this list
has so much less volume I thought I would try here first.  I am
running a 2.4.0-test9 woody system with whatever the latest Debian
XFree86 4.0.1 packages happen to be.  I have a Dell Inspiron 5000e
with the ATI Rage 128 Mobility LF (AGP) video card.  As this is a
laptop, I am using a flat panel display.

For the most part X works well, but there are a few things which are
bugging me:

Is it possible to enable DPMS, or whatever mechanism allows for
turning off the screen?  I have 'options "dpms"' in my "Monitor"
section, but I am just told 'Option "dpms" is not used' when X starts.
DPMS is detected on external displays when I connect one, so I know
the driver supports it.

I can output X to external display by hitting the CRT/LCD toggle
button on the laptop.  Is there a way to have X use the external and
the LCD display?  I am not looking for Xinerama or anything fancy, I
would just like both displays to show the same thing.

Feel free to ignore these questions if you feel they do not serve the
interests of debian-x.

Jeff Lessem.
