This sounds like it could be a monitor issue.  I have several 'green'
monitors that go dark after a period of non-use which is longer than the
time set for my screensaver.  I am not at home at the moment, so I can't
quote the models, but in the menu of the monitor itself, I was able to
turn this feature 'off' on two models.  A third would not allow me to
alter the setting.
