Screen is blanking every few seconds

Hi, starting from today I have wierd issue which is not related to Power Management configuration nor screen saver configuration (I have everything disabled for both). If I will not touch keyboard and mouse for few a seconds, the screen will enter "powersave mode", so basically if I will move the mouse it will wake-up, if I will not touch it for few seconds it will enter powers save mode...etc......

I am not really sure what's going on, It's pretty much possible that I was updating something via pacman -Syu, anyway yesterday I couldn't observe such behavior. I was trying to reboot the machine, but the issue is still there.

pretty much similar issue is described here (Ubuntu): https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour … bug/952521 but I couldn't find any recommendation for fixing it...

Any idea what to check?
