It does. The 3 monitors we have in the datacentre are all VGA.

And they all go into power-saving mode when @ the linux
console? (i.e not in a graphics or GUI mode)?

Cuz never have seen my console turnoff.

The linux console has code:
ESC [ 14 ; n ] Set the VESA powerdown interval in minutes.

They don't specify any equivalent for VGA. :-(

If it works for you, how do you specify the timeout?

Maybe the driver dos something to turn it off in VGA mode?
