Personally, I noticed that using xscreensaver, the screen locks but never
enters standby, suspend, or off DPMS power saving modes. If I run "xset
dpms force off" the monitor immediately powers off and comes back on when I
hit a key or move the mouse. Also, xautolock is failing to detect
inactivity and suspend my computer as I have it configured to do.
This happened since upgrading from linux 4.6.4 to 4.7.2 and continues to
occur with 4.7.4. I've noticed this on two separate computers, one running
Intel graphics and the other running the nvidia driver.
The version of xscreensaver has been unchanged for me at 5.35 since 1 July.
