is display/power management enabled in the bios?
dpms ??

AFAIK, no.
It is a server, it is up24*7, not easy to reboot and check.

It seems to be the display set own setting, 2 hours of non activity to
switch off. The problem is convincing it to go "on" again. The computer
apparently sends signal, but the display doesn't react.

Maybe /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-monitor.conf containing:

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "DefaultMonitor"
Option "DPMS" "off"

would help?

Does Xorg.0.log say anything useful about display power? Journal? Which gfxchip?
Which Xorg driver?
