Description Stephen Rasku 2001-07-22 22:24:58 UTC
Description of Problem:

I am running XFree86-4.1.0-0.9.0.  My XF86Config-4 file can be found at
http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/showattachment.cgi?attach_id=23787.  I
have the DPMS option set in the Monitor section and I have the BlankTime,
StandbyTime, SuspendTime, and OffTime set in the ServerFlags section. 
However, whenever I start X, DPMS is disabled.  

I am reporting this bug as an XFree86 bug but it's possible it has
something to do with KDE.  There has been other bugs reported regarding
DPMS and the recommended fix is to upgrade xscreensaver and
control-center.  I don't have those packages installed so that can't be the
problem.  I do see a screensaver, though.  I assume that this is some sort
of KDE screen saver.  I am running KDE 2.1.1.

How Reproducible:	100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  startx
2.  xset q

Actual Results:

DPMS (Energy Star):
  Standby: 120    Suspend: 300    Off: 600
  DPMS is Disabled

Expected Results:

DPMS (Energy Star):
  Standby: 120    Suspend: 300    Off: 600
  DPMS is Enabled
  Monitor is On

Please attach X server logs.
Also, BTW, your monitor is not listed in the Monitors.Db in Xconfigurator.
If you send me the Windows .INF file for your monitor (if you have it),
I can add the monitor to the database and EDID info for PnP autodetection.
