Display turning off after 15seconds

I installed Zorin OS 16 Ultimate on my laptop about a week ago. Everything went smoothly. But since yesterday, my displays turns off after about 15 seconds of inactivity. When I move the mouse and press some keys on the keyboard it comes back. Is there a setting to disable this behaviour or at least increase the time from 15seconds.

Zorin OS Ultimate does not even exist. Where did you download that version ?

Sorry made a typo. It's Zorin OS 16 Pro

Settings > Power - disable the option for Dim Screen when Inactive.

run this in terminal:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.session idle-delay 0

Disable Blank Screen...

Regarding the typo, I've made that myself. Because all previous Zorin OS versions, the PRO version was called Ultimate, so our brains were conditioned. But the Zorins changed the name to PRO now. So now we have to re-learn what we have learned.


Thanks for the correction. Blank, not dim. Me wits dim. Screen blank.

Thanks it worked
