[mythtv-users] screen goes black after inactivity after FC2 upgrade

Hoping someone can help. I upgraded from FC1->FC2 and have ironed out
almost all the problems. One problem that still exists is that my
screen goes black after some inactivity, and I need to issue the
command gdm-restart to restart mythfrontend.
I am using ratpoison, and was before. I don't think there is a built
in screensaver that I need to turn off. I have also issued these
commands as per Jarod's guide:
# echo "/usr/X11R6/bin/xset -dpms" >> /etc/rc.d/rc.local
# echo "/usr/X11R6/bin/xset s off" >> /etc/rc.d/rc.local
and restarted, but that does not seem to do the trick either.
and the only reference to dpms in my xorg.conf file is a commented line:
[root at localhost root]# more /etc/X11/xorg.conf |grep dpms
# Option "dpms"
Can someone point out where I might find what is causing this? I am
guessing it is either a screensaver or power management feature. I
just have no idea how to turn it off and would love to. Again, this
happened after upgrading to FC2.
Email me if you want a gmail account, I have invites.
