Sounds like you need to add

        Section "Monitor"
                Option          "DPMS"          "false"

In my ~/.xinitrc, I have these

        xset s off &
        xset -dpms &

to prevent blank / monitor off (suspend DPMS).

This is for the text mode consoles only. You can add


do your /etc/rc.conf, but I think it's already a default
value (check /etc/defaults/rc.conf).
