I was wondering if there is hope that someone will put patches to main tree of Xorg-server which are here: http://blogs.gnome.org/hughsie/2009/08/ … of-bodges/
It should remove this weird blanking effect and time gap before screen is backlighted again. I didn't tested it, because it requires rebuild of xorg-server and I don't want to use git version, but guys there says that it's working.

Oh boy, I experienced that problem a few times. I "solved" it by removing the "gnome-power-management" package (I think that's what it's called...) and instead used X (xset) to turn off the monitor after 30 minutes.
read the blog, you will probably have to wait till the new version is out, patches appear to be already included in the server.
you could also use ABS and apply the patches yourself for the time being. its not that hard.
OK, thanks for advice, I'll try building xorg-server with ABS.
I've got another problem with automatic turn off screen - media players don't prevent turning screen off while they are playing film. Is there any possibility to fix it? Only way I've found is to turn off automatic screen backlight off after couple of minutes, but it's not how tigers want this to work
