Energy Star compliance?

I have an Energy-Star compliant monitor, and W*nd*ws will make use of
this feature by shutting down the monitor after a specified period of
inactivity.  Can XFree86 be configured to do the same?  Ditto for the
Linux console, in fact.

Some of X servers support it. At least I can use it with my Diamond Stealth
64 video 3200 card. Following is my partial setting in "Screen" section.
The settings, BlankTime, SuspendTime, and OffTime, control the time periods
of 3 different power saving levels.

Section "Screen"
    Driver      "accel"
    Device      "S3-968"
    Monitor     "Sony"
    BlankTime   5
    SuspendTime 8
    OffTime     15
    Subsection "Display"
        Depth       8
        Modes       "s1152x864" "s1024x768" "s800x600" "s640x480" "s1280x1024"
        ViewPort    0 0
        Virtual     1280 1024
        #Invert_VCLK "*" 1
    EndSubsection
    Subsection "Display"
        Depth       16
        Modes       "s1152x864" "s1024x768" "s800x600" "s640x480"
        ViewPort    0 0
        Virtual     1152 864
        #Invert_VCLK "*" 1
    EndSubsection

        . . . .

The version I use is XFree86 version 3.1.2A. It is a beta but works very well
for me.

Here's the way you add it to your XF86Config file:

Section "Screen"

        Driver          "accel"
        Device          "#9 Motion 771"
        Monitor         "Nanao F2-17"
        # Screen saver timeouts: after 5 min inactivity blank screen, after
        # 10 minutes go to suspend mode and after 20 minutes go to off mode
        BlankTime       5
        SuspendTime     10
        OffTime         20

    Subsection "Display"
