I assume you are using KDE. You can control the power management for the display in the Control Center / Peripherals / Display.

Also, it may not be KDE that is blanking the screen. Try looking in your BIOS or the menu on your stand alone LCD or CRT for power management settings.

Did you check the BIOS? Older computers using APM will have power management settings there.
