Disabling Xorg Screen Blanking

13 02 2009

Hello! Just a quickie… I’ve always had trouble stopping Xorg from blanking the screen when not running a window manager… Recently found out how to do it:

First up enter the following line into the Monitor section of /etc/X11/xorg.conf:

Option "DPMS"

Now enter the following into the ServerLayout section:

Option "blank time" "0"
Option "standby time" "0"
Option "suspend time" "0"
Option "off time" "0"

That should keep your screen awake no matter what.
