Now this makes me think it could be my mains power setup, as I'm using a master/slave power outlet strip, in which the computer is the master and only after turning it on, the peripherals are literally plugged to the mains. This leaves the L220x in the situation that whenever it is powered itself, the computer is already running (quite the opposite as you're suggesting to try), it does not have to "wake up" from standby then, as it's really powered up by the power cord (although I think I noticed it remembers the state of the power switch even when completely powered off).
turn off your computer while the L220x is attached and powered. this should eliminate any OS variables with linux. if the display still comes back on with a green light after going into power save mode then there's a problem. if it stays in power save then it's something with your OS.
Yes, will sure have to check with windows, too. Maybe it all boils down to plugging the monitor directly to the mains and leave it do it's own power/standby cycling by itself.
definitely test it with XP, too, to verify that it does work properly under another OS. my guess is that it has something to do with linux but at this point it's just a guess.
under every OS i've used my L220x (XP, server 2003, vista, and server 2008) it correctly enters power save mode whenever the system is put into suspend or turned off.

ahh, yes, i'll bet it has something to do your power strip. knowing that, i'm quite confident that your L220x is ok.
post back when you get it figured out.

Tried the monitor at my friend's place, and standby works with DVI! So I guess I'll order a new graphics card.
