Screen goes blank even while in use[Xfce4]

Hi,
My screen goes blank and auto lock even while the pc is in use i looked the power management settings every thing is disabled.

Edit: It only happenes when i dont move the mouse or touch the keyboard for 5-10 mins

This sounds like it has something to do with the power management. Open the XFCE settings and go through your power options.

Edit: Nvm, glad you got it sorted

Hi Thanks for the quick reply,

I was able to solve the issue everything in the power management was disabled as i mentioned,
The issue was with the screen saver it was set to 5 so even if i am watching a video it would go off so i changed the number to 1 and the video problem was solved then i just disabled the screen save.
