sorry if this is a re-occurring subject.
Does Xgl support DPMS?
Running "xset -q" on my xgl build reports:
DPMS (Energy Star):
Display is not capable of DPMS
is this a configuration problem or Xgl is indeed not capable of DPMS?
I've read somewhere on the list (I can't find it now) that hardware
overlay is not used in Xgl. If I'm not mistaken, isn't "xv" (X-Video)

"mplayer -vo gl2" is fine (although not as good as using xv on a normal
PS: this is the configure options I use for building xgl:
PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/Xgl/lib/pkgconfig ./autogen.sh --enable-xgl
--disable-xorg --disable-xprint --enable-glx --enable-dri
--with-mesa-source=/tmp/mesa --with-release-snap=1 --disable-dmx
--disable-xvfb --disable-xnest --enable-xglx --enable-xkb
my xorg.conf file has Option "DPMS" "on" both in Device and Monitor.
DPMS works fine in normal Xorg xserver
