[kde-linux] kpowersave and Screen Savers

I'm using Suse Linux 10.0 with KDE 3.4.2 and
 I am having a minor problem with the kde screen saver.
 After about 7 minutes the monitor will blank out even though
 I have the monitor power control turned off (contorl center  --> peripherals ---> Display.....).
 I noticed that with this turned off, the  kpowersave program is still running.
 I have tried turning power control on and setting to an hour or so before allowing
 it to blank the monitor off, but it still does it in about 7 minutes.
 This is a home system using an ABIT KT7A-RAID mother board
 with an ATI 9200 SE vidio card, and  an A70F ViewSonic monitor (analog only).
 I have played with some of the bois settings, but it does not seem to make
 andy difference.  The manual says that ACPI is always available on this
 mother board.

I poseted this problem on the Suse E-mail List and only got this work
around from another user:

         Turn the Monitor Power Control function on with all of the sliders
         to the disable (full left) position.

This does indeed work with no power save capability, but only during  that
Log in session.  If I log out and back in, I have to do this step all over again.

 How do I get the power control to  honor the settings (1 hour lets say) that
I set up in it?
