i915? But video is i845, will that work?

I expect so. I wouldn't be surprised if most workarounds for i915 troubles are necessitated at least in part by the derelict 845G.

If it doesn't, try what I do by default (nice to know whether it works or not):

In ~/.bashrc

setterm -blank 59 -store

Somewhere in /etc/* I also do:

Option "DPS" "off"

Then again, I'm not a laptop user, except for one infrequently used antique with r128.
