I have the following problem.
It seems that after installing Debian and the NVIDIA Driver, the Screensaver starts after the X-Server initializes.
The screen stays black, until the mouse is moved. I am not sure whether this is an issue related to the screen saver or the energy save mode.
We cannot change the setup in the X-interface, because it is a rather minimalistic debian system with just a few components... The following commands are send off without any effect: "xset -dpms" and "xset dmps force off"
The commands have to be executed in the shell. I have the feeling that the proble lies in the energy save mode, so it would be great to know how to turn this feature off completely.

Re: ScreenSaver Problem
Like said before you should post a bug report, but there are two main ways you would have a screensaver; either DPMS and monitor blanking is enabled in your xorg.conf, or you have XScreensaver installed. You could disable (or remove) Xscreensaver or put 'Option "NODPMS"' in your xorg.conf; or disable blanking by setting the timers to 0 in your ServerLayout section like this.
Option "BlankTime" "0" Option "StandbyTime" "0" Option "SuspendTime" "0" Option "OffTime" "0"
