If you are using KDE on openSuSE (maybe another distro. like KUbuntu) 
and have a problem with the screen blanking after about 10 mins. of 
non-use, then you have been bitten by a bug that no one knows the cause 
of, or isn't admitting to what it is......yet. There is a temp. fix, for 
now, or at least it does work for me.

 From command line, su to root, then run the command: xset s noblank -dpms

You MAY have to run it more than once to have it work but it works for 
me. Note: I've turned OFF ALL power management and yet I still had this 
problem, so you can try that, and you probably should anyway, but you'll 
still likely end up running this command.
