monitor shut down is controlled many ways.  I have used the xset method for mine.... However I think kde has something under power management section  and I am sure gnome does also.

The xset method is like this
xset dpms
or
xset dpms 300 600 900

(numbers are standby suspend and off)
You might consider putting this command into /etc/X11/Xsession


Look at man xset and just type xset (and xset -q to see what it is set as)

i tried xset dpms 300 600 900

but ended up with an information screen

i noticed it said i could type xset -dpms and that will turn off energy features off
