maybe using xset to turn off blanking would work.  Something else is 
causing the problem, but this might stop it.  The above link goes into 
detail about using xset. I used to use it instead of a screensaver to 
blank the screen, but either setting it to not blank at all or perhaps 
turning off dpms will work.

Another idea might be to comment the line in xorg.conf for DPMS.

Just ideas I'd try if I had the problem, because I don't know much of 
what could cause it.
