if it's xscreensaver try "xscreensaver-demo"
if it's the monitor going into power saving mode then try editing
and change the dpms suspend time line

        # Video drivers for the terminals
        XSERVER            = auto
            # XFree 4 drivers: ati cirrus cyrix fbdev i128 i740 i810 mga
            #      neomagic nv r128 radeon rendition s3 s3virge savage
            #      siliconmotion sis tdfx tga trident tseng vesa vga
            # XFree 3 drivers: XF86_FBDev XF86_S3 XF86_S3V XF86_SVGA
            #      XF86_VGA16 XFree86 Xvesa
        X_COLOR_DEPTH = 24
        X_DPMS = Y
        X4_MODULE_01 = glx
        X4_MODULE_02 = vnc
            # add the GLX module by default, blender and the like need it
