If turning off the screensaver in the menu, or indeed making the built
in power management inactive and this doesn't resolve your problem, see

After further investigation, and more googling again, I found this
article below of 5th Sept,


This fix works for me. One thing to note, one suggestion is to issue
the command

xset s off

to turn off screen blanking in x, however that didn't work, what did was

xset s noblank

but I also had to disable dpms

xset -dpms

heehee, and it worked!!

wow, this author has helped save my sanity and I can't thank him enough.
