Monitor Standby in Init3 Console
I'm sorry if this question has been posted and answered elsewhere; search results for applicable terms either result in too many results or not enough.
Anyhow, here's the issue: To conserve memory, I operate my Linux (FC5) box in Init 3 (commandline console). When I am away from the console for a period of time, it blanks my monitor's screen but does not actually put it into Standby or Suspend. This, of course, is what I want to do. I'd prefer to have the monitor in a Power-saving mode than just a blank screen, for the sake of my electricity bill.
Can this be accomplished? If so, please tell me how.
I'd like to add that Standby/Suspend works fine when running in Init 5, both KDE and Gnome. Similar posts all seem to refer to X rather than simple console.
