    [SOLVED] monitor going into standby after 10 min

    I'm having problems with my monitor going into standby after 10 mins. I have adjusted powersave to work after 120mins of no activity and disabled the powerdevil daemon to no avail. I'm running out ideas and wanted to know if anyone has a fix?

    Update: Thanks katio I tried what was in the thread you linked and still didn't solve my issue. I gave in late last night and went to the slackware irc and it was fixed.
    So for anyone else that may have this problem here is what worked for me.

    Code:
    $ setterm -blank 0
