Ticket #1952 (closed defect: fixed)
Starting a VM turns DPMS off in X.

This is in VB-OSE 1.6.2, Debian sid package (1.6.2-dfsg-4).
Before a VM starts, xset q says:
DPMS (Energy Star): Standby: 0 Suspend: 0 Off: 600 DPMS is Enabled Monitor is On
Once the VM is started:
DPMS (Energy Star): Standby: 0 Suspend: 0 Off: 600 DPMS is Disabled
This is the same whether the VM starts (was last stopped) in seamless mode or not.
Then once the VM is stopped, DPMS comes back. I can also re-enable it manually after the VM starts, so this is only an issue when I forget and the screen stays on without reason.
