Sounds like you're still running a screensaver somewhere. Try ps
ax | egrep 'screen | lock'
Maybe you have xlock or xscreensaver running. You could also
doublecheck your X config with
xset -q | egrep -A 3 'DPMS|Screen Saver'
You could have peace of mind that your DPMS and your screen saver
values are actually off.
