If you want -- it's entirely up to you. X has an impressively long list of places and variant filenames where it will search for the XF86Config file: so much so that you should take some care about where you leave copies lying around. I believe that /etc/X11/XF86Config is the preferred, if you like, "standard" location under FreeBSD. > > Section "ServerFlags" > > Option "BlankTime" "10" > > Option "StandbyTime" "20" > > Option "SuspendTime" "30" > > Option "OffTime" "30" > > EndSection > > XF86Config(5) has the details. > > None of these "ServerFlags" are mentioned in my XF86Config file.

There's lots of stuff that might go into XF86Config which isn't mentioned in the automatically generated config file, produced by 'XFree86 -configure'. In this case, these options will be applicable if your monitor supports DPMS, irrespective of the make of your video card. Most monitors do, now-a-days.
