dpms fails to function even after selecting Standby, Suspend, and Off, even
though the entries are correctly recorded in .screesaver, and after
running xscreensaver-command -restart
The video driver is a generic s3 and the display is a ViewSonic VPA150.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Redhat-> preferences -> screensaver -> advanced -> change settings
2.run xscreensaver-command -restart

go to energy-saving mode.

Any errors in the X logs?

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2002-11-07 23:56:04 UTC
Bug reporter says:

The answer is: no errors in the log file, just an audit comment at the foot
saying "Client 14 rejected from local host."

Comment 3 Ray Strode [halfline] 2004-11-10 20:29:17 UTC

This bug is quite old now.  Given the lack of activity on this report and the
likelihood that this bug has already been fixed, I am going to close it.  If you
encounter the problem discussed in this report with Fedora Core 3 or a recent
version of xscreensaver, feel free to reopen.
