yes i remember your posts i referred to them a couple of times. Yeah i think the DPMS issue you had is solved, I had exact same problem. Maybe 9.5 fixed it(I'm not sure but thats my guess). but monitors will, turn off, not just blank. Yeah of course, I haven't gotten suspend, resume to work yet. I've been concentrating on this shutdown problem.
I think all these issues really get better once they get consolekit up and running with multiseat. Anyone good ideas with sound in multiseat. I've seen some stuff on pulseaudio. It would be nice if could throw the usb sound devices in xorg.conf as another device. Maybe you can but i haven't seen anything on that.
