Description Peter Fales 2001-04-25 23:50:17 EDT
After going through an upgrade from 7.0 to 7.1, my DPMS screen blanking
working.    I do an "xset dpms 600 1200 1800" then leave the system.  When
return, I used to see a blanked screen, but now I find the xscreensaver
graphic hack 
running and  "xset q" shows that DPMS is disabled!  I did some experiments
and found
that turning off  xscreensaver fixes the problem - i.e. it appears that
xscreensaver is
disabling DPMS.   I finally settled on the workaround
of falling back to xscreensaver-3.25-4 from RedHat 7.0.   So, the problem
to have been introduced somewhere between there and xscreensaver-3.29-3 
from 7.1

xscreensaver now handles DPMS settings; you can configure it with
xscreensaver-demo, or via command-line arguments in the forthcoming
xscreensaver-3.32-1 package.
