Please provide more detail. I need to know in what directories to put
the script(s). I have tried in /root/.kde4/Autostart and in
/etc/skel/.kde4/Autostart (both at once), putting the commands

xset dpms 600 900 0
xset +dpms

which works until reboot, and then it doesn't, and the commands don't
carry forward either.

Does it matter what the name of the script is?

Thanx for you reply--doug

Blessed are the peacemakers..for they shall be shot at from both sides.
