Screen black after 10 minutes in 17.1 Cinnamon

After having through settings minimum 5 times, I still can't find the setting that stops the screen getting black after about 10 minutes of inactivity.

I want that deactivated or at very least delayed.
It should be possible to use see a movie without having to reactivate the screen..??

Vlc should prevent screensaver. You can also try installing other desktop environment. And make sure you configured power settings and screensaver settings.
