The last thing I can think that it could work, is to use ansi escape codes to do the same as setterm:
Code:
echo -e '\033[9;0]\033[14;0]' > /dev/console


I did not get you where to run this command
or need to write in /dev/console
since /dev/console is a character device (file) can't edit..

If you're talking about blanking in X, you might want to add:

Option "DPMS" "OFF"

to your xorg.conf under your monitor section iirc.


Otherwise setterm should work on the console. If it's not running at boot, it might explain what you're noticing. Or if you haven't rebooted since adding it to your boot scripts.

# apt-get install util-linux console-common console-data console-tools dh-consoledata kbd-compat

And other related things.

@OP
You have to write the command while in command line (CLI). Actually it's another way to do the same as the setterm command (blank 0, powersave 0).
