How do I defeat screen powersaver - asus p5k

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am running Mandriva 2010.2 on my asus p5k based system. I am trying to view streaming media (sports) and after about 15 minutes the screen goes blank - rest of system is still running (can hear the sound still). A little mouse movement brings the screen back. I have disabled the screen saver (system settings / desktop) which apparently does not help with the blanking issue. Is this with the P5K powersaving or with Linux? Fix please ....

 

Thanks -- Roger
