I would check to be sure that you don't have a setting in your bios that
is powering down the screen. My bios has power management settings in
it. Also, I was under the impression that some energy-star compliant
screens power down of their own volition, with nothing to do with the
operating system. As always, I could be completely off-base, but I hope
I've said acurate info.
