[solved]Power Saver mode
I am having this problem in xorg:- After being idle for a specified time the monitor should go into power saving mode (one which shows amber light instead of green) but my monitor does not. What should I do so that it does so (as in settings in xorg.conf or something else)?
Related Info:- Window Manager = WindowMaker.
Thanks for all help in advance.

Ok somebody got that for me so posting that solution for the benefit of others.
In /etc/X11/xorg.conf add option "dpms" under section monitor
Section "Monitor" Option "DPMS"
Section "ServerLayout" Option "BlankTime" "5" Option "StandbyTime" "10" Option "SuspendTime" "0" Option "OffTime" "15"
Edit:- I don't think it has anything to with my window manager. I am not sure if some options in kdm/gdm will override these since I don't have these installed no way to check them...people can try it though.
