Power manager for fluxbox

Hey all,
What do you use as power manager in fluxbox or any other WMs? I am using xfce4-power-manager but the problem is it doesn't turn off the screen half the times. It's like when it's in mood and I have just boot up my pc, then after the specified time it turns off the monitor but other times it just doesn't work.
I can
xset dpms force off
but that too stays for like a minute. Any ideas/suggestions are welcome.

solved using xscrensaver as standalone, it was conflicting with xfce-pm.
