    xfce4 power manager not turning screen off

    These commands turn the screen off
    xset dpms force standby
    xset dpms force off
    also my screen is not dimming on idle like it is set to

    switching monitor to suspend from standby under extended got it to act right

    On my Ivy Bridge powered computer I have to use the settings under "Display Power Management" (after enabling it) on the "Advanced" tab of the "Screensaver" settings in XFCE to get proper dimming and suspension of the display.
    Actually I think I need to do that on a laptop with an ATI-card too.
    Hope that helps.
