Update Raspberry Pi OS to the latest
Before you begin, make sure you are running the latest version of Raspberry Pi OS arm32 or arm64. If you need help installing Raspberry Pi OS, follow this guide from raspberrypi.com.

sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade in a terminal to make sure you have the latest available version.
Turn off Screen Blanking

In Raspberry Pi Configuration Window, click on
Display Tab. Look for the

Disable, and then click
