Re: console and screen blanking

APM is buggy at times, you can compile a new kernel and disable APM and
also turn off APM in the bios.  i stopped trusting APM when i lost 3
drives due to spin down and several crashes(in many different OSs) due tot
he machine not being able to wakeup after going to sleep.
