Try this

[root at moonstudio ~]# cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/disable-blanking.conf 
Section "ServerFlags"
    Option "BlankTime"   "0"
    Option "StandbyTime" "0"
    Option "SuspendTime" "0"
    Option "OffTime"     "0"

with this xorg.conf you now could turn on and of blanking by
xfce4-power-manager-settings, at least when using a PC, something that
doesn't work without it. I don't know if it solves the laptop issue,
too, but I suspect it will do so.
