How to disable the monitor sleep mode
A week ago I changed the linux distribution from Ubuntu to Slackware. I also changed my windowmanager from Gnome 3 to XFCE. But whatever I set in the power manager XFCE puts the monitor to sleep every 10 minutes. Here is a fix that worked for me.
It seems to be that the sceensaver is the problem. Some people installed xscreensaver to set the sleep- and suspend-time, but I don’t want to install a screensaver. But you can set the BlankTime to 0 with the following command for the current session:
sudo xset s 0 0
The option “s” is to set the screensaver settings and the two zeros are standby-time and suspend-time respectively. If you want to set the BlankTime permanently, you can add the following lines to the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.
Option "BlankTime" "0"
