Question 7900GS + 2 x Dell 2001FP, monitors won't sleep

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS amd64, the Ubuntu distributed 'current' nvidia driver packages (195.36.24-0ubuntu1~10.04) and the system is up-to-date as of 05/26/2011. I'm using a nvidia generated /etc/X11/xorg.conf. I've verified that the power management options have it set to put the monitor to sleep after 30 minutes. Screen saver is set to 'blank' after 5 minutes.

The screen saver works just fine but after 30 minutes the monitors do not go into sleep mode they just sit there with the blanked black screen with the back light still being used.

Thoughts?

Here is my xorg.conf:
