If I minimize Thunderbird or Firefox or whatever I currently am working on, then leave the system alone it should turn the monitor off after a set number of minutes.

XScreenSaver is not turning off the monitor (however it will dim) if anything is left minimized in the lxpanel.

What is the resolve?
