To /etc/X11/xorg.conf add

        Section "ServerFlags"
            Option "BlankTime" "0"
            Option "StandbyTime" "0"
            Option "SuspendTime" "0"
            Option "OffTime" "0"

Then killall xfce4-power-manager or if you need it don't kill it, but
and select the "Display" tab and set everything to "never" instead of
time values. For me disabling by the power-manager never worked without
the xorg.conf entries.
