    Check your BIOS settings... it's probably a setting in there doing it.

    also see if your X config file has Option "dpms" #Display Power Management System .

    Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
    Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS

    Your monitor might be going out, cause I had an old monitor and it would go out after 20min of use or non-use
