Gnome keeps disabling dpms

I've installed gnome 2.2 from source and it works but when I also install control center it turns off DPMS and in its place puts on a random screensaver that I have no control over. The only way I've been able to get dpms to turn itself back on again is running 'make uninstall' in the control center directory.

Now I get:
Keyboard Control:
auto repeat: on key click percent: 0 LED mask: 00000000
auto repeat delay: 660 repeat rate: 25
auto repeating keys: 00ffffffdffffbbf
bell percent: 50 bell pitch: 400 bell duration: 100
Pointer Control:
acceleration: 2/1 threshold: 4
Screen Saver:
prefer blanking: yes allow exposures: yes
timeout: 600 cycle: 600
default colormap: 0x20 BlackPixel: 0 WhitePixel: 16777215
Font Path:
Bug Mode: compatibility mode is disabled
DPMS (Energy Star):
Standby: 1200 Suspend: 60 Off: 300
DPMS is Enabled
Monitor is On

Font cache:
hi-mark (KB): 5120 low-mark (KB): 3840 balance (%): 70
File paths:
Config file: /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Modules path: /usr/X11R6/lib/modules
Log file: /var/log/Xorg.0.log

But before, when control center was installed, it'd say 'DPMS disabled' and I saw no where where I could disable screensaver and re-enable dpms.

Has anyone had this problem? What can I do to get control center and dpms working.
