    Screen blanking after 10 mins

    Screen blanks out while I'm watching a movie. It happens about 10-15 mintues of not touching anything. As you can imagine, really annoying.

    Xubuntu Lucid 10.04
    XFCE version 4.6.1 (Xfce 4.6)
    Fully updated
    HP DV5215us (DV5000) laptop

    Here what I thought needed to be set to prevent this behavior.

    Power management for A/C is set
    "Put computer to sleep after"->Never


    Screensaver is the GLMatrix.
    Only one screen saver
    Blank after 120 minutes
    Cycle after 170 minutes
    Lock screen after 120

    Any ideas what I've missed?

    Have you changed your monitor sleep settings in power management on the bottom of the screen saver settings screen ?

    Look like that was it, thanks! How stupid is that to have a second power management setting. What's even more messed up was it was not enabled in the screen saver settings (checkbox not checked). Now it's enabled with high values set and seems to be ok now.
