I have a monitor which was properly switched off by my Debian PC when unused. I attached it to another machine and, this times, it is never switched off.

In /etc/X11/xorg.conf, I have:

Section "Monitor"
        Identifier      "Generic Monitor"
        Option          "DPMS"

It is recognized when X11 starts:

(II) Loading extension DPMS
...
(II) VESA(0): DPMS capabilities: StandBy Suspend Off; RGB/Color Display
...
(**) Option "dpms"
(**) VESA(0): DPMS enabled

The operating system is Debian 5 (Lenny). The graphics card is:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82G33/G31 Express Integrate
d Graphics Controller (rev 02) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
        Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device 2a6f
        Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 5
