ACPI Display Power Control Problem

Hello everybody!
I have successfully installed Slack 9.1 (KDE 3.1.4.) with 2.4.2 bareacpi kernel provided from the cdrom.
The acpi deamon (acpid) seems to run properly and I have successfully passed the "DPMS" option to the XF86Config file. Despite of that Display Power Control won't work. I mean to say that my monitor doesn't standby neither suspend nor power off.

Am I missing something? Do I have to edit the /etc/acpi/events file????

Any help is appreciated!
