It's no different on arm than any other arch SFAIK. This is probably a
debian-user question really.

You can set screen blank times for XFCE in 'Settings'->'Power
Manager', 'Display tab.  or run xfce4-power-manager-settings. There
you can set times, or just tell it not to blank or power-down at all.

It is possible that you _also_ have something like xscreensaver
installed, whcih may be trying to manage the screen too. You can just uninstall that.

The openssh dameon is independent of the desktop and will start
first. If you don't start the desktop ssh should still work.
