Question SuSE 9.2 Pro and ACPI

I have just upgraded from SuSE Pro 9.1 to 9.2 and seem to have a power management problem. I am running an Intel 2.8Ghz chip, 1Gb memory, 160 Gb ATA drive, and a Sylvania L17 LCD monitor. In the old SuSE I could set power management with slider bars to have the "sleep" mode of my monitor kick in after so many minutes. I had a screen saver that came on after 10 minutes and then the monitor went to sleep about 20 minutes later if I didn't do anything. When I try to do the same thing in 9.2 I get a message that I have a partial ACPI installed and should recompile my kernel. For my install I did a backup of all my files and then a full, new install from the SuSE DVD. The only non-standard thing I did was to add some extra software packages to the normal full KDE install. Then I did a manual process, using Yast and Control center to set all my preferences again. I didn't copy any config files from my backups.

Now, after the time delay I set in the Control Center I get about 1 minute of the screen saver followed by my monitor going to sleep. I can't find any way to adjust the time delay on the sleep due to the partial ACPI message (at least I think that's the issue?). Any ideas? It's not major issue, just a great big pain where I sit. TIA
