Disable power saving?


I used to know how to do this, but I can't seem to remember...

How can I stop an OpenBSD machine from going into power save mode so that the network interfaces will still work even after being idle for a while?

I thought it had something to do with apm/apmd, but I can't figure it out. The last time I had to worry about this was about 4 years ago. Now I just did a clean install and don't remember how to do it.

See Section 5.8 of the FAQ for information on how to disable functionality found in the kernel:

http://openbsd.org/faq/faq5.html#BootConfig

You will also want to familiarize yourself with the information found in the apm(8) & apmd(8) manpages.

Yea, I think I figured it out. I had to use -a on apmd. I looked through to man page like 10 times and I guess I just read through it too quick and overlooked what that options does.
Thanks for the reply though.
