Hello everybody!

Current setup:
Sapphire HD 6850 BARTS

When DPMS kicks in (no matter what mode, e.g. standby, suspend or off) my
monitor's back-light switches off and then on again. The cycle repeats


sleep 1; xset dpms force off

Then my monitor goes black and a message appears stating "no input signal".
Then the back-light switches off. But after a second the monitor restarts as if
the status had changed (e.g. signal had returned) and the back-light switches
on again. Next comes the message again "no input signal". Repeat repeat repeat.

I also check if changing the power_method (dynpm vs. profile) makes a
difference, but it doesn't.

I have a HD 3200 on-board. When that card is enabled instead, DPMS works fine.

Thanks for taking a look!

Kind regards
