As I said. Doing this in X has never been a problem for me. It is when
I am _not_ in X that the monitor does not blank.

The commands run fine, but nothing happens.

Damir, do you have the 'blank' line (or rather, are you only using the
one from /etc/rc.sysinit)? One of the things I wondered about recently
is whether these two commands are somehow mutually exclusive - if
maybe the screen will not 'powerdown' if it is already 'blank'ed? Do
you know anything regarding that?
