Default DPMS problem

I'm using a fresh install of Kubuntu 6.10 with the Nvidia drivers provided from the standard repositories. I can't get DPMS to work on Kubuntu 6.10 but it worked on Kubuntu 6.06. I tried enabling DPMS in KDE, in xorg.conf and at the command prompt with 'xset'...The screen blanks but the display does not turn off.

Here are my specs:
Nvidia Geforce FX 5600 Ultra, Nvidia glx 8774 driver, 2.6.17-10-generic linux kernel with HT=on flag set, Xorg 7.1

'xset -q' OUTPUT
Keyboard Control:
auto repeat: on key click percent: 0 LED mask: 00000000
auto repeat delay: 250 repeat rate: 30
auto repeating keys: 00ffffffdffffbbf
bell percent: 50 bell pitch: 400 bell duration: 100
Pointer Control:
acceleration: 20/10 threshold: 2
Screen Saver:
prefer blanking: no allow exposures: yes
timeout: 0 cycle: 600
default colormap: 0x20 BlackPixel: 0 WhitePixel: 16777215
Font Path:
Bug Mode: compatibility mode is disabled
DPMS (Energy Star):
Standby: 300 Suspend: 600 Off: 900
DPMS is Enabled
Monitor is On
File paths:
Config file: /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Modules path: /usr/lib/xorg/modules
Log file: /var/log/Xorg.0.log

I suspect the problem may be the Nvidia driver because I can make DPMS work with 'xset' if I boot from the Kubuntu 6.10 Live CD or boot Kubuntu in Safe Mode. I'd appreciate any help in this matter.

Default Re: DPMS problem

Never Mind. I did some further tests and checked into it some more. The problem is not with the Nvidia driver. Its with kubuntu and/or KDE. I can enable DPMS with 'xset' at the command-line. I can't do it from KDE's Kcontrol menu and make the Power Save time stick between reboots...It always seems to default to 5 hours.
