Default problem with screen blanking and DPMS

I am using the latest Linux driver (9775) with a twinview configuration with two new DELL DFP displays. After the displays have been idle for
a while, the video shuts off and the screens go blank. (Expected behavior). When I press a key or move the mouse, only the second monitor comes
back on. The first monitior remains blank. The only way I can get the first monitor to come back
on is to restart the X-server.

Any idea what might be causing this?

I am able to disable the screen blanking altogether with
xset -dpms, but then the screensaver doesn't even come on.

1.0-9755 is not the latest driver. 100.14.11 is the latest driver.

If this problem persists with 100.14.11, please see the forum sticky posts.
