DPMS is Enabled
Monitor is On

And the screen blanks automagically after about 5 minutes or immediately
if I tell it to from command-line (1 second delay).

What command do you use to blank from the command line? Forgot that one:-)
600 should give you 10 minute (60 * 10) time out, so with 5 minute delay it
sounds like you have something else going on here.

5 minutes is "feels like", never measured and time is acceptable so I
really don't care :). I usually blank the screen from the cl anyway.

sleep 1;xset dpms force off

You can assign the cl to a hotkey sequence or make it an alias cmd or a
script or call the script from a hotkey or ....

I also set xset params in my login profile
