My screen goes black after 30 seconds of inactivity and when I press a key, it shows where it was and does not need any password. This problem won't occur when I use it for watching videos in platforms such as youtube etc. My Ubuntu version is 22.04.
I have used some methods to overcome it but still couldn't.

  1. I've changed screen blank to "never" in setting>power>screenBlank

  2. I've used commands such as 'gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power idle-dim false', and 'gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.screensaver lock-delay 600' with and without sudo in terminal.
    I restarted my pc after them just in case.
    could you please help me with this?

Same problem here, with Ubuntu 22.04 after only 30 second of inactivity the screen turn black, to bring back the display on screen I need to press a key or move the mouse. I have also notice it does not occur when watching video like YouTube.

The work around which work on my side, is to call this command:

xset -dpms
