No, I had already start "xset -dpms" and "xset s off" when my window
manager (FVWM) starts.  So that doesn't fix the problem.

beagled somehow detects when I switched to a different virtual console
and think the machine is now idling.

I've filed a feature wish:

I faintly recall some problems when doing that, namely that when
starting "beagled --replace" from ~/.bash_profile when I log in several
times in a row [1], then I had several instances of beagled running
concurrently.  I think we discussed that on IRC, but I may be mixing
things up.

[1] This may happen e.g. when I'm working solely with virtual text
  consoles under LINUX.
