Prevent Openplotter from Sleeping

I've been looking, but can't find out how, to keep the Raspberry Pi from powering down when there hasn't been input for a few minutes.  I'm guessing it is a power-saver setting somewhere.  Help please...

Yes, the "disable Screenserver Button" is allready in Settings.

That is in the Raspberry Pi settings and I have it disabled. It seems that my Pi shuts down in 10 minutes if it is left alone.
So, in:
[Preferences], [Raspberry Pi Configuration], [Display], you can enable/disable Screen Blanking. This setting seems to have no effect.

[OpenPlotter], [Settings], [Raspberry Settings], there is a tab for [Disable Screensaver], which doesn't seem to do anything.

I'm still having issues. When I walk away from my Pi, the screen blanks and I cannot wake it up. The Pi LED remains lit and the little light on the USB Wifi dongle remains blinking leading me to believe the Pi is still powered up. Moving the mouse or typing on the keyboard has no effect and does not wake the Pi.

I've tried xscreensaver and disabled it as many people suggest on the net does not work. What should I try?
