Screen does not wake up after going to sleep at promp

I am running as described in my sig. I will turn the mahchine on and after a good ammount of time the screen will turn off. I'm going to asume this is linux trying to run a power conservation mode on my monitor, which is all good and fine. But it will not always wake up from it.

This is both the case if i never log into it localy or loginto it and leave it at a CLI

I can run kde and the display will come back but if i log out back to CLI the screen will go blank again.

Thanks in advance

on the gui it will wake up if you move the mouse.. hit the space bar to wake it up from a sleep in the CLI. Does this help?
