here is my problem, and from what i have found out through the forums,
google, and various other places, this is a serious thing that needs to
be addressed:

 i have disabled all power management settings in edgy, including
commenting out the dpms section in xorg.conf, and doing the setterm
settings, but my monitor will still go to sleep after about 15 minutes
of inactivity! this is very annoying when trying to watch a movie as
many others have experienced. 

what i would like to know first of all, is there some setting i may be
missing, and secondly, is there a plan in the works to correct this
flaw? by the way, i am using an ati radeon 9600 with fglrx driver.

thanks in advance for any help
