When I am under on of the other window managers, like Fvwm, my screen

past, before my system crash, and I lost my notes on what to do. If I
run openSuse System Settings, manually enable Power Management, then go
to Power management I can set a time to dim the screen. But I used to be
able to do that directly under X. Doesn't xset work under X any more? I
tried doing the xset as root, also without success. Is there some set of
services I can enable to provide the screen blanking?

Thanks, and sorry for the a bit off topic

I tried all of the xset options suggested in the replies. xset still does
not work on my machine. I added consoleblank=600 to the boot command line,
and that does cause blanking in 10 minutes as desired. I do not know what is
wrong with xset, something openSuse sets up? Anyway,
no longer a problem.

and you tried:
maybe it isn't getting initiated or ??

try from cl: xset s reset
xset s activate
xset s on

all or in combinations or ...

and NO, not as root!
