Default DPMS problem 6629

Hello everybody,

I'm using 6629 drivers, have GForce4 4200 with VGA and DVI.

Have 2 LCD screens and my problem is when I do
xset dpms force off

the screen on DVI go to power safe mode but not the screen on VGA : it goes blank but not power saving mode.

I have Option "DPMS" on each screen in XFree conf file.
Using Debian Sarge kernel 2.6.8

Default Re: DPMS problem 6629

Found out :

xset dpms force off makes the DVI screen to go power safe
xset dpms force suspend makes the VGA screen to go power safe

don't know why....
