Related to but the root cause of that ticket was in fact xfce4-settings not processing kernel changes correctly that resulted in the display staying asleep under kernel v4.4.x and v4.5.x. See this ( upstream xfce4 ticket wherein a patch has been proposed that on my system and on another user's system (comment #55) fixes the problem. I have attached it here for your convenience.
This task depends upon

Do you think they will release a new version (upstream) of that package with the patch in the fasible future (like few weeks)?

@Jristz - No, I do not. The upstream bug report I referenced has been open since Aug/2014. Xfce4 has a notoriously slow development cycle.

Unfortunately, Evangelos Foutras is the one that deals with Xfce. He's on mandatory military service, so he isn't around much right now.

Thanks Doug. At least users savvy enough to search the bug track will happen upon this solution. BTW, I have experienced dozens of monitor sleep/wake cycles with this patch applied under linux v4.4.6 and have not experienced the problem again.
