Well, that's how you do it, presumably, with xfce power manager, which
was the question. Obviously, you toggle presentation mode on and off as
necessary, unless you're watching netflix 24/7, which might curdle your
brain.

If not, there's 'caffeine'.

Description-en: prevent the desktop becoming idle in full-screen mode
 Caffeine prevents the desktop from becoming idle when an application
 is running full-screen. A desktop indicator ‘caffeine-indicator’
 supplies a manual toggle, and the command ‘caffeinate’ can be used
 to prevent idleness for the duration of any command.

This exhausts my extensive knowledge in the area.
