Windows 7 screen goes blank and will come back only when mouse is used

HP G60 laptop, after the unit has been on for 10min or more it has a random issue with the display going blank. If you move the mouse the display comes back as long as the mouse is moving. Stop moving the mouse the display goes blank. Sometimes if you let it sit awile it will start working again. It is now so bad the computer is not useable. It has McAfee protection and I run system fix it utilities 11.

What is your screen saver set at (number of minutes) ? How about power management settings in Control Panel ?
