That pretty well proves that it can work on a CRT.  Thank you.

If you feel up to it, could you kill your running gnome-power-manager 
and start a new one in a terminal with `gnome-power-manager --verbose`, 
and let the display sleep and wake up, and send the output directly to 
me?  (Kill the new G-P-M with Ctl-C.  Something started a new one for 
me, possibly switching users, but it might be better to start it 
yourself with `gnome-power-manager &'.)  Note that there's some risk in 
all this, that you might lose control of your display.  The output 
might show me what is different about our systems, from G-P-M's point 
of view.

I wonder if it's a ATI Radeon or ASUS MB issue.  Both are old.
