    ...but they aren't timing out. Does anyone know what might be keeping this from working? Another setting? Some program is keeping it from timing out?

    The Answer!

    Thanks to all the responders... It turn out the NAL's response to "Monitor/display will not turn off" was the answer. I unplugged my AV8R Flight Stick (USB joystick) and the display timeout started working. I'm working on updating the joystick drive, but that's a separate issue.
