[mythtv-users] Screen goes blank after some time...

I have had a working mythtv box for about a month or so now.
I recently changed the default window manager using .Xclients in my home
directory.  I wanted fvwm2 to launch by default and then
mythtvfrontend right behind it.
I'm running FedoraCore1 and using s-video out on my Nvidia GeForce4MX
440 to a huge TV.
Since I switched to the fvwm2 wm, the screen has been going to sleep
after about 20 minutes
or so.  If you use the remote to change the channel or something, the
screen comes back.  But if you do it for too long it seems to turn off
the feed to the tv entirely.  This seems like some kind of
xscreensaver crap but I made sure to kill that process.
Can anyone help? 
BTW, it also happens if I launch mythfrontend without a window manager.

 What is this "sleep" of which you speak?
