Question LCD on arm-linux blanks after 10 minutes


Hi,
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.

Regards,
Ravi
