I use kdm, which uses the xdm config files, so on my system it's in 
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xdm.  My file now looks like this:

# $XConsortium:,v 1.3 93/09/28 14:30:30 gildea Exp $
# Xservers file, workstation prototype
# This file should contain an entry to start the server on the
# local display; if you have more than one display (not screen),
# you can add entries to the list (one per line).  If you also
# have some X terminals connected which do not support XDMCP,
# you can add them here as well.  Each X terminal line should
# look like:
#       XTerminalName:0 foreign
:0 local /usr/X11R6/bin/X -dpi 100  

I've just noticed that X also has a 'dpms' option, so I'll set that to 
see if that fixes my other problem too.
