I couldn't find anything. When I run configure, it says:
| Checking for DPMS ... yes (using Xdpms 4)
but I haven't found a way to turn it off.

No that doesn't work. The monitor does indeed enter powesave mode, but
the tv picture is distorted (looks like a sync loss on both, the tv and
the monitor).

Ciao, Sebastian
