I'm not sure how it worked, but it probably just used whatever is the
default DPMS timeouts of the X server. Maybe that version of gdm can
run a script at startup where you can set those values with "xset".
Try "xset -h" and check what options you need to put in it to handle
the DPMS timeout values you want.
