Screen turns off automatically with Plasma 6

I just installed Endeavouros with KDE Plasma 6, and I’m getting this problem with my screen even when Energy Saving is unchecked all its properties. My screen persists in turning off after 5 or 7 minutes, sometimes it fails to recover after making movements with the mouse and stays off. This did not happen with Plasma 5.


How can I fix it?

A potentially stupid question. Have you saved your preference by clicking on the “apply” button on the bottom right-hand corner?

Maybe a problem with kernel zen?

Did you also change the separate Lock Screen automatically settings? That’s set to a default of 5 minutes IIRC. It’s on a different section of the settings, separate from energy saving options. On mobile right now so I can’t send a screenshot

Here’s the setting I meant:
