I noticed that after 10 minutes of inactivity, my screen went blank. Xscreensaver is not loaded and of-course gnome-power-management is not loaded. Did some research and found "X" enables some kind of Display Power Management.
I found a solution via google:
gksu leafpad /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Add the following:
Section "ServerFlags" Option "BlankTime" "0" #This blanks screen; 0=Do not blank Option "StandbyTime" "0" #This is DPMS; 0=Do not put in standby after n min Option "SuspendTime" "0" #DPMS; 0=Do not put in suspend after n min Option "OffTime" "0" #DPMS; 0=Do not shut Off after n min EndSection
Note: If you already have a "ServerFlags" section, just add the "Option" lines before "EndSection"
