also you can use smplayer to stop the suspend/screen switch off by using smplayer

  1. install smplayer (su -c "yum install smplayer"; #needs rpmfusion repo)
  2. open a video file with smplayer
  3. click on pause
  4. minimize smplayer, and it will block the screen shutoff/suspend, as long as smplayer is running with the video is playing or paused.

In GNOME Shell you should be able go to System Settings > Power and set "Suspend when inactive for" to "Don't suspend" in both categories: "On battery power" and "When plugged in".
