Screen Power Down does not work

I cannot seem to use Ubuntu's System Settings/Monitor and Display/Power Saving 
to shut down my monitor when I leave the computer. It only gets to running 
the screensaver, not the power down features.

I am not sure if KDE uses apm for controlling power management. My video 
hardware is all autodetected and configured: NVidia GeForce4 card, Sony GDM 
17SE1 monitor.

Any ideas what could be up?
