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.

My LCD screen goes blank after 10 minutes (exactly), and never comes back on. I would like for it to never go blank.
I am running Linux 2.6.27 on Atmel 9261. The LCD is LG-Philips LB035Q02. I am using the framebuffer console in text mode only (no X). Linux console is via serial /dev/ttyS0, but I can output characters on the LCD, e.g. echo "ABCD" > /dev/tty0. Shell is busybox.
A few selected .config options are given below.
I would include any additional information but at this point I don't know what would be relevant. Please ask as needed.

Please check your framebuffer source code.As i was also facing the same problem and i have made some changes in framebuffer source code.In my case
i was running my LCD ON GPIO pins and some GPIO related pins were in OFF case.That's why i my LCD was getting off after 15 minutes.Please check it.
