I don't know why the virtual consoles go BLANK only after about 20 seconds,
it seems to be a problem with the graphics mode && the graphics resolution.
In fact, after a very fresh Debian-Installation (Sqeeze / Wheezy anyway ...)
the virtual-console had a very,very,very tiny type face AND the graphics resolution within X (KDE) was automaticly choosen at 1600x1200 dpi.
A use a Nvidia GTX 210 card and this video mode is the highest available mode.
At this mode on my CRT-monitor this video-mode is not good to my eyes :)
so I chose another (less higher) resolution.
I did not realize the problem with the blanking virtual terminal at once !
(cause of not regularly using the virtual console).
When recognizing the problem I thought this occurs at any mode - not until after a few experiments I found out the relation between the graphic-resolution:
1600x1200 o.k. also for the tty1 - tty6
lower than 1600x1200 NOT o.k.
