screenblanker vs login

How do I shut the screenblanker off on an arm64.

If the screen gets blanked, the login is busted, no username and password 
is valid and the only way out is a hard reset, which is a huge time 
killer, starting with 9.9 seconds in, a 90 second wait while the journal 
is being played back, then a return key or a 5 minute wait before it 
does a startx.

I am capable of turning the monitor off when I am done for the night, but 
everytime the blanker kicks in, 5 minutes I think, its a reboot to get 
back into this thing. And the reboot takes at least 5 minutes.

I have looked around in the xfce menu's looking for blanker timing and 
such, but they aren't there. xset gets reset to its defaults , which is 
way too fast, on a reboot.

So how do I completely disable this so I can actually get something done?
450 seconds is not enough to get logged in even.

And nothing related to ssh works until xfce is up and running.

Thanks for any hints that will restore this thing to usable.
