Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm running Debian Jessie & I haven't been able to stop from blanking due to non activity while play videos on internet tv.
It doesn't bother me when I'm not at computer but if I'm watching a video I don't want to have to hit the mouse to stop screen from blanking.
I think that the xset commands work as long as I enter them at beginning of session, but I also tried different settings in xorg.conf file following these steps http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=13990
They have worked in the since that they do not blank after 10 mins but they do bla after a while, maybe after 2hrs.
Distribution: Deb, Mint, Slack, LFS, Fedora, Ubuntu(LXDE)
stop Gnome screenblank
This has bugged me a long time, it became critical this week and the screen has to be live for certain operations (recordmydesktop) even if the monitor is off. Running Wheezy Gnome desktop, normally up 24/7 before monthly reboot. I don't need screensaver or locking or blanking, I turn off monitor when not working.
Run "gnome-screensaver-command -q" to get status. This will show you if gnome screensaver is your active screensaver.
If it is, run "gnome_screensaver-command --exit" to kill it.
This will need to be run every boot, manually or in boot script. There should be a way to keep gnome.s.s from starting but I haven't found it yet.
This also may need to be run with login, but since I never logout, I can't be certain.
