I don't use a screensaver as such.  I think it's DPMS (??) in X, the 
screen is blanked and the output to the screen is disabled.  So that it 
takes advantage of power saving.

The screen blanks fine ... however pressing keys on the remote do not 
re-enable the screen.  Even hitting enter to go into the frontend 
doesn't enable the screen.  It will only enable once I hit the remote 
after the frontend is loaded.

This did work up until the last month or so.
