[MANJARO AWESOME] Can't put displays to sleep

Hello everyone!
I have a configuration with 3 monitors, 1 of them is disabled.

At the beginning whenever I left the workstation the monitors turned in standby automatically.

Now, don't know why, not anymore.

I tried to use the built-in xfce4-power-manager but it seems not working even if I change settings.

xset q output is:

Keyboard Control:
[...]
Screen Saver:
prefer blanking: yes allow exposures: yes
timeout: 0 cycle: 600
Colors:
default colormap: 0x20 BlackPixel: 0x0 WhitePixel: 0xffffff
Font Path:
/usr/share/fonts/misc,/usr/share/fonts/TTF,built-ins
DPMS (Energy Star):
Standby: 120 Suspend: 0 Off: 360
DPMS is Enabled
Monitor is On

I also tried to execute xset dpms force standby and it works. But as soon as the displays go standby everything go up and running again (asking me for password ofc).

So I though that there is some app preventing dpms to work maybe?

Also, values from xset q of the dpms are different from the values of the power manager

xset -dpms disables dpms, xset +dpms enables it. does it still happen after disabling dpms?

Thanks for the reply.

Nothing seems to change disabling dpms
