Disable local console blanking

4 posts in this topic Last Reply

Recommended Posts

I'm using a dedicated GPU for unraid (NVS 290 in the top PCIe 1x slot), I sometimes use the unraid GUI but want to primarily use the console to save resources.  I want to completely disable the automatic console blanking (screensaver).  I've tried many different solutions I found online but nothing has worked so far in Unraid.  Come to think of it I don't think I've never been able to disable this "feature" in all of my years of using various linux distros, but this time I am determined to find a solution.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried any of the suggestions from here: https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/8056/disable-screen-blanking-on-text-console ? Do any of them work? Maybe some variation of the setterm command?

I've tried most of whats in those two links, I can give it another go tomorrow.  I was hoping to find someone that knows the exact command or conf file to edit specifically for Unraid.  I've invested way too much time into this already with no results

Most Unraid users run headless and don't really care about screen blanking. Those who have a monitor attached just press a key and the screen comes to life. Good luck with your search.
