The problem is DPMS, the energy saving stuff. Personally, I disabled it
globally in my x.org config;
Option "NoPM" "true"
Option "BlankTime" "0"
Your IR control won't wake out of monitor sleep, because X doesn't
recognise it as a device (i.e. it's controlled by LIRCD rather than an X
device). I'm attempting to get around this so that I can use Xscreensaver
to draw pretty pictures when Myth ain't in use; try adding something like
this to your .lircrc
remote = myremote
button = bleep
prog = irexec
repeat = 0
config = xset dpms force suspend
