- Ubuntu Gnome 14.04
When locking the screen, my monitor/screen turns off immediately.
I don't want that to happen immediately, more like after 30 minutes or so. Is that possible?

This is not possible anymore in Gnome 3. You would have to execute
gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power idle-dim-time [seconds] (possibly as lightdm as this is the user who runs the lockscreen) however this key doesn't exist anymore.
A possible workaround Khurshid mentioned is to install XScreenSaver (and set the timeout from there):
This extension, "unblank", appears to work, I have only had it working for a minute now but my test shows that it keeps the display from turning off after pressing super + L.
I have a fresh installation of Ubuntu GNOME 14.04 on a new machine I got, and I have set the power to dim after "inactive for 30 minutes"
When I lock the screen it does not turn off for 30 min. However, if you don't manually lock the screen, it will turn off when your power settings have reached their limit (i.e. 30 min set time)
