The g-p-m FAQ mentions something about this,
My monitor is broken and treats DPMS standby and off states as
'no-signal' which leaves the monitor powered on.
You have to change the dpms suspend mode gnome-power-manager
Open gconf-editor, and then change the
and /apps/gnome-power-manager/battery_dpms_sleep_method to
one of the modes that work, e.g. standby, suspend or off.
The dpms problems with apm is probably a kernel problem, but this should
at least let you work around it.
