Default Disable DPMS


I'm configuring a multimonitor setup with a NVS440. I'm using xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-100.14.19-3.lvn7 and kmod-nvidia-100.14.19-

All four displays are working with GLX enabled

The problem is that I need to disable de DPMS function in every display.

Those are the lines for every monitor and device configured in xorg.conf

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
ModelName "LCD Panel 1280x1024"
HorizSync 31.5 - 67.0
VertRefresh 50.0 - 75.0
Option "dpms" "off"

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "Videocard Vendor"
BoardName "Nvidia NVS440"
Option "DPMS" "off"
Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
BusID "PCI:3:0:0"

Searching the logs I've found
(**) Option "dpms" "off"
(**) NVIDIA(0): DPMS enabled
This make me think that the X server disables DPMS but the NVIDIA driver enables it

If I use xset -dpms when the monitor is blank it comes back but I have to do it every 10 minutes

What I'm doing wrong?

Thanks for the help

Default Re: Disable DPMS

are you using gnome or kde?

if yes, have a look at their settings - they might turn it on behind your back

(btw, I just let ut2004 run for some moments.... after some seconds of ut2004 monitor never goes black again until the next reboot)
