Default Re: Monitor won't go to sleep properly with 9500GT

Is it possible that the driver is not parsing the EDID block correctly? I unloaded the edid.bin using the
nvidia-settings util and parsed it with parse-edid. It seems to indicate that my monitor is reporting
itself as "dpms off" capable:

parse-edid: parse-edid version 1.4.1
parse-edid: EDID checksum passed.

# EDID version 1 revision 3
Section "Monitor"
# Block type: 2:0 3:ff
# Block type: 2:0 3:fd

EndMode
# Block type: 2:0 3:ff

# Block type: 2:0 3:fc
EndSection

I wonder if some inconsitency is causing confusion?
