A more elegant way would be to create the following file in /usr/local/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/01-disable-blanking.conf:

Section "ServerFlags"
        Option  "BlankTime"     "0"
        Option  "StandbyTime"   "0"
        Option  "SuspendTime"   "0"
        Option  "OffTime"       "0"
EndSection

Don't forget to add it to /opt/.filetool.lst
