under Section "ServerLayout"
Option "BlankTime" "180"
and it didn't change a thing.
Not sure what to try next.
It's not set in gconf or xorg.conf
As you said, Crunchbang uses openbox.
The best place to ask about this issue is either the Crunchbang forums or the IRC channel.
However, in Crunchbang 8.10.02, if that is the version you are running the screensaver can be set/changed from an option in the menu.
Right-click on the desktop to bring up the menu (or press Super+Space ) go to "Preferences" then "Screensaver and Power Management"
You can disable the screen saver from there.
