how to turn off monitor after a given time

so can anyone tell me how exactly this can be achieved?
under display->powercontrol i already enabled power management but "standby after", "suspend after" and "power off after" don't seem tow work here
"make aware of power management" in screensaver doesn't change anything.

You have to enable DPMS in your xorg.conf by adding

Option "DPMS"

at the end of your monitor section.
