Many thanks. Maybe I'll give it a try, although I'm not very much 
inclined to the build driver solution.

Just in case you know, I was using the vesa driver but start not working 
properly (some issue with the rendenring) so I'm right now using the 
fbdev driver, but with the switch (from vesa to fbdev) the DPMS stops 
working, any ideas?
