    If it's an unmodified eee-pc, it's running Xandros. That's a distro that was obsolete when Asus introduced the eee-pc, and most owners have removed it and installed a modern distro. I don't know if that's the case with the OP's machine. If it's still running Xandros, the only real solution is to install a newer OS, because you can't install newer software without running into dependency hell.

    The screen blanking may be from the power settings. Most distros allow killing the display after a period of inactivity, independently of the screensaver. I can't remember the Xandros settings, since I haven't run it in years, but the power settings should be available somewhere.

    I"m not familiar with Zorin, but check the power settings. It may be set to blank the screen after a certain time.
