    Arrow Display never turns off

    I've set my display to turn off using the screensaver GUI and using the option:

    xset dpms 0 0 120
    To turn off my monitor after 2 minutes. However, I left my computer after leaving for school and come back to find the monitor has been on and bright all day. I noticed a few minutes ago as I walked near my computer (hadn't used it but I saw it out of the corner of my eye) that the display started to fade like it does when it's about to go into screensaver mode. Right when it was supposed to go off, the screen just turned back on. Is there anything that could be stopping the display from turning off?

    Good judgment comes from experience, and often experience comes from bad judgment.
