I had this on a fresh install of Mythbuntu, checking the Install Binary 
Driver for Nvidia during setup.  Driver was installed, but kernel module 
had not been compiled, xorg.conf not configured appropriately.  I remove 
nvidia* packages, ran jockey-gtk to reinstall the drivers, after reboot 
the nvidia drivers where installed properly.

I believe default is for Power management to blank screen after 10 
minutes, Reconfigure Power management, or disable and configure
