[mythtv-users] DPMS monitor standby/resume

My Myth box runs 24/7 so I don't want to power it off when I stop watching 
TV/whatever so I have irexec running in the background with the power button 
mapped to "/usr/X11R6/bin/xset dpms force off" in order to send the monitor 
to sleep.  However, I can only bring it back to life again by pressing a key 
or moving the mouse.  Does anyone know of a little program that toggles the 
monitor on/off instead of setting an absolute value?
