Have the same problem here. i think it's thanks to the second "Unknown Display"

tried 1) xrandr --output VGA-1-2 --off screen darkens and nothing changes 2) went to "Settings" -> "Display". found 2 displays, one was build in display - primary, and second unknown monitor. tried to turn in off but changes did not applied. so cursor still blinks! dont know what to do. Maybe this link will help. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1173963
