I just set the logout script to something like 5 minutes or something. 
I just put it to something reasonable for when I am logged out, which I
think was the defaults anyway.  If you want, when you reboot next time,
see what it is set at and put that in the script.  Just sort of undo
whatever you did basically. 

It is nice to watch a movie and not see the screen saver pop up or to
have the monitor go off.  Both will make you have to go poke the mouse
or keyboard.  :/
