Thanks for the info Sean.  There is / was no entry in the xorg.conf 
indicating dpms or apm either.  I added the dpms under the monitor 0 
section.  I'd already checked to see if the screensaver had dpms enabled 
and it was.  Now if it does not work, I'll start thinking even more 
about this mobo having problems.  I have already gotten numerous 
messages during post that the core voltage on cpu0 and cpu1 were either 
overvoltage or undervoltage, and after hearing a relatively loud "pop" a 
few days ago, even more suspicios.  Have never seen that with any mobo, 
and I've been thru a few in the past 30 years.  I'd hate to see a pair 
of 3.0G Xeons get toasted by a faulty voltage regulator, and I still 
need to investigate the pop noise and see if I can find the capacitor 
that shot.  Never ever will I buy a Tyan board.. just not the quality of 
the Asus boards.
