My desktop>Configure > Desktop..>Display>choose Power Control tab
is set for:
Enable display power management - NOT checked

These are greyed out unless Enable checked above:
Standbye after		Disabled
Suspend after		30 min
Power off after		60 min

It appears I should not be getting any display power management at all. 
  How are yours setup?
