Oh, the above assumes you are using Debian Etch. With Debian Lenny, I think the option "DPMS" is turned on by default even if there's no line in xorg.conf referencing it. For Lenny, I added a line like this:
Option "DPMS" "off"
...which seems to work. I think. I'm not as familiar with Lenny.
ot a strange question at all and it is completely possible. There is a utility called "xset" which is built for the purpose of tweaking X.
Quick list of what it does:
xset s Reset to standard settings
xset s 600 Activate after 10 minutes
xset s blank Use blank screen
xset s off Deactivate screensaver
xset s on Switch on screensaver
xset s activate Activate screensaver immediately
xset q Display current settings
xset +dpms Enable power saving
xset -dpms Disable power saving
So for you to enable:
xset s on
xset s activate
And to disable:
xset s off
You can use cron to enable at a time.. and disable at a time.
