Check the current setting using:

gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.screensaver idle-activation-enabled

If the result is true turn it off using:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.screensaver idle-activation-enabled false

Second option to try is:

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power idle-dim false

Gnome bug

There is a four year old Gnome bug addressing the issue of screen blanking immediately after lock here.
