[mythtv-users] Kinda sorta OT: Display keeps going to sleep

I'm having an issue with my myth box where the display is going to sleep.  I
had this once before where it was unknowingly set under power management to
sleep.  I changed it to "Never" go to sleep and that worked for a while till
now.  The setting under power management is still "Never" but the display
goes to sleep after 30 minutes with no remote control input.  Pressing a
button on the remote does not wake the display up, but the box does process
the input.  I usually end up restarting X via ssh or vnc'ing in and changing
the refresh rate then applying to re-init but can't find anything that would
be causing the display to sleep.  

I'm running Fedora Core 6 x86_64 with Nvidia 5200 and latest 9476 (if my
memory serves me) drivers.
