I had observed on an F12 machine that uses the mach64 driver that the
monitor won't get powered off if no keyboard or mouse activity occurs after
a reboot. gdm is configured to autologin, so a reboot automatically logs me
into my desktop. If I do not touch the keyboard or mouse, the screensaver
will kick in, but the monitor won't get turned off.
I have to punch something to the keyboard. Only then, after a suitable
delay, would the monitor get powered off.
