well this is an xserver default to blank the screen after inactivity to
protect it. this can be turned with xset. consult the man page of this
little usefull tool. this tool is especially handy to set runtime options
of your xserver like mouse settings during startup (~/.afterstep/autoexec)
use "xset s noblank" to turn it off.
