I moved to awesome from xfce4. but when I watch something long in Youtube (>20m), the screen is shut off automatically in 10min. I checked my configuration in laptop_mode, the delay time to shut off the screen is 1200s=20min. I removed xcreensaver too. However, when I watch some video in smplayer which disables screensaver in preference, screen keeps on even in 10min without operation. Someone knows where the problem is? Thanks in advance.

I'm pretty sure this is an xorg.conf thing. Check 'man xorg.conf', there's an option "BlankTime" that defaults to 10 minutes. It can even (according to the manpage) be set on-the-fly with xset.

I don't have this file "xorg.conf" in my /etc/X11/... the system detects very well my screen. so I don't need any configuration for the display. the only configuration file under /etc/X11 is for touchpad.

To disable screen saver
Code:
xset s off


To disable screen blanking
Code:
xset -dpms


You can play with the value
For Screen Saver : xset s x y
For Screen Blancking : xset dpms x y z

Have a look a xset q when you change a value.

So I need xorg.conf to make the configuration work permanently?

This is just one possible solution, you could create a minimal xorg.conf wit DPMS setting in it, or you could disable it in your DE startup files.
