yes, I have tried the xset dpms flags option
eg. 'xset dpms 1201 1801 2401'

and these stay set until i reboot or kill X
but I _think_  I have seen a stray "dpms-like suspend" occur
at least once even with those settings.
So it still looks to me like some other system control.

I am using gnome; so maybe gnome power manager
is doing something here.
My system is a desktop not laptop.

Do you have any more info as to just how in your case
xset dpms was fighting with gnome power manager?
