Sounds like you need to add
Option "DPMS" "false"

In my ~/.xinitrc, I have these
xset s off &
xset -dpms &
to prevent blank / monitor off (suspend DPMS).

This is for the text mode consoles only. You can add
do your /etc/rc.conf, but I think it's already a default
value (check /etc/defaults/rc.conf).
