raspberry pi 3 disable screen saver

The easiest way to disable screen blanking in the Raspbian GUI is to install xscreensaver then configure it to disabled.

Open up the terminal window and run these two lines

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xscreensaver

You may have to reboot after installing xscreensaver.

Use mouse to go to Preferences –> Screen Saver (from top left menu option)

In the [Display Mode] tab, set like this – Mode: [Disable Screen Saver]
