If anyone can help me disable the 5-10 min screen blanking in the terminal or in DE I would appreciate it alot, it's very annoying when I play on retro arch any game every 5-10 minute the screen goes blank and i have disabled all of the settings in power management and where i could find anything on idle or idling or screen or monitor settings. Please help, even if I need to disable it in terminal that I will do so.

No, how do you test DE's?

Post your terminal/konsole in- and output as text (no pictures) from:

Did you check the system settings, display configs or Garuda assistant / tweaks?
