What a nuisance, the window manager used ignores the xorg settings and xset
I had to:
1. Exit mythfrontend
2. Right click on the desktop, choose settings.
3. Select screen saver
- Disable screen blanking
- Enter power settings and slide all of the sliders to the far right so
they said *never*.
This appears to have stopped the screen from blanking...
