Description of problem:
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.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Redhat-> preferences -> screensaver -> advanced -> change settings
2.run xscreensaver-command -restart
3.nothing happens at the display

Actual Results:  Ok, this is getting repetitive.  It doesn't blank the screen or
go to energy-saving mode.

Expected Results:  Power-saving mode should be entered.

Any errors in the X logs?

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."

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.
