No problem. Much appreciate your help.

I just did an strange experiment: use the vesa driver instead of the 
fbdev and the DPMS work just fine.
Sop figure out that is a driver related problem. Something isn't working 
with DPMS and the fbdev driver for the Xorg.
Unfortunaly the vesa driver does not quiet well work out with my video 
card, so thats why I use the fbdev driver.
