Console screen blanking

Post by foxysplace » 2010/08/31 21:33:14

I can't for the life of me remember how to change the screen blanking in the console. I'd either like to turn it off or set it for like 10 hours or so. I didn't turn anything up in a search of the forums so decided to post.

A quick google on [url=]console screen ~blanking[/url] turned up:

From "man console_codes"[code]
ESC [ 9 ; n ] Set screen blank timeout to n minutes.
