Default Screen keeps going blank but should NOT ! :-/

Hi list,

I notice an annoying problem recently. Not sure when it started
happening, probably when I upgraded to 8.10, that kind of time frame.

Problem: my screen often goes blank (as if it were in deep stand by
mode), even though I have disabled the screen saver, and power
management is set to never take any kind of power saving action.

I also notice that it does it randomly. For example, one day it may
never go blank, and other days, it may go blank 3 times in just one
hour... basically when it feels like it.

It's especially annoying because my monitor is of the CRT type, so when
I wiggle the mouse to wak eit up, it takes significant time to "wake
up"/warm up again, it's not an instant thing like I guess it is on LCD

Anybody experiencing the same ? Any solution (other than
programatically wiggling the mouse of course) ?
