It's the screensaver. Something's causing it to trip, when it shouldn't.

Absolutely.

The screen going dead while I was working scared me half to death a few
times until I went to the power management settings and changed it to
never put the display to sleep. No more problems until the other day
when I decided to try again, but it's happened again once since I
enabled it.

It happens both ways: sometimes the screen gets shut off when the system
is not idle, and sometimes it doesn't get shut off when the system is
idle. And _most_ of the time, it works correctly.

I don't think it has anything to do with the screen saver per se; that
seems to be ok. I think it's the power management that's a little confused.

I go with the power management theory. About two updates of something ago, the power management system stopped putting my monitor into standby. It turns off the image, but the backlights stay on.
