1. Ubuntu timeout

Using Euphoria 4.1 and Ubuntu 18.1

The default Ubuntu timeout of ten minutes is very annoying. I am the only person who has access to this computer, and I want to eliminate the timeout completely. I have found and followed two different methods that were supposed to accomplish that; neither one worked.
Any suggestions? (Probably use a Ubuntu forum) :)

It's probably found under Screensaver/Settings.

Haven't been able to load Ubuntu yet - severe storms and power outages all afternoon - that's not a good time to be updating a computer....

On my system on the far right side of the top "bar" there is a kind of circular symbol which will display a drop down list when selected with the mouse arrow.

Select System Settings from the drop down menu. A popup box entitled "help" will open. From the first row of options labeled "Personal" select the "Brightness & Lock" icon. You will be presented with a pick list offering options to "turn screen off" after various selectable time interval options, including "never". I leave mine set on never and leave the Lock settings alone.

Hope this helps...

From the Show Applications icon at the bottom left corner of the screen (the one that has 9 dots, looks like a die)

If one of a pair of mice is a mouse, shouldn't one of a pair of dice be called a douse?

Click on Settings (the gear and wrench icon), Then Power from the left-hand list, and in the drop-down list next to Blank screen, choose how long or never.
