Power Management not working
I'm looking for some ideas for getting my power management working. To get the monitor to shut off anyway. I don't really care about the suspend to RAM, auto shutdown, or hard-drive spin down stuff.
First off, I'm running RedHat 9, the Ximian 2 Desktop, and Linux kernel 2.4.22
I recompiled my kernel to include ACPI (short for "Advanced Configuration and Power Interface") support because I couldn't get APM to work and because I read that APM was being replaced by APCI. I downloaded the latest kernel patch for APCI from acpi.sourceforge.net and patched my kernel with it.
I've checked my XF86Config file and it does include "DPMS" and "SyncOnGreen" in the Server Layout section.
When I run xscreensaver-demo, my Power Management options are available. (They are not greyed out.) Which according to the documentation means that the kernel knows I have ACPI.
My acpid deamon is set to start during bootup and I have verified that it is running.
So ... like ... why ain't it working?
