All turned on, and an "xset dpms force off" actually turns it off.

All is, set for 3 minutes. A 'test' works, sitting here watching the time on
the x-clock doesn't.
an "xset s q" returns the same timeout values setup in

lkml's not interested, using NVIDIA driver. And the x server by itself was
updated < a week ago by smart.
I reverted to the 9755 version of the nvidia driver because that one worked
just fine for a couple months at least. Also reverted to a 2.6.21ish kernel
I know worked a month ago with NVIDIA 9755.
That leaves the x server that smart updated a few days ago. It went from
1.1.1-47.8 to 1.1.1-47.9.
Can the x.org folks comment here?

All great ideas are controversial, or have been at one time.
