radeon vs radeonhd drivers

Greetings all;

I rebuilt 2.6.26 for smp and my new hardware and have rebooted to it.

But the monitor is still sitting in black, not powered down, the next morning.
This did work well when the box was an xp2800 and the card was an ATI 9200SE 
AGP version.  I was using the radeon driver in my xorg.conf then.

Now the box is a 4 core phenom and the card is an HD2400, PCI-E, and I'm using 
the radeonhd driver although the radeon seems usable too although slightly 

Is this driver difference causing the lack of monitor power control?  
Something that radeonhd does not yet support?


Cheers, Gene
