On both my monitors the screen blanks when you do not use it for a time.
Anybody has an idea who is in charge of this? I don't have a screen
saver. Just plain XFree86 under Sarge with the Nvidia closed source driver.
I would like to disable it in some cases.
Thanks Folks for the answers!
The best I get disabling dpms is 20 minutes with either:
Option "BlankTime" "3600"
or -s 3600 in the start options for the server.
Raising this to 7200 has no effect: 20 minutes is all she gets...
Problem is that the log acknowledges dpms as an option but does not
record its behavior.
This is with Sarge's XFree86.
