I remember trying to figure this out many releases ago.  I don't think
fedora uses the native X dpms.  It has never been on as long as I can
recall.  

There is a second parallel timer maintained by some gnome entity that
needs to be set via the gnome-control-center.  It appears to me that
if you run that from the root account (after being chastised for
running the gui under root), that the root-changed settings may get
written to a system-wide database.  It just seemed to me that when I
lowered the dpms timeouts for the root account that the dpms timeouts
for the default login screen also were lowered.

Not sure what the kde folks are supposed to do.
