screen goes black after 20 minutes


Hi,
I just installed Debian with KDE 3.5. What annoys me is that the screen goes back after 20 minutes of inactivity. Screensaver is disabled, I don't need power managemenent - I'm using a desktop pc. According to Control Center APM is not installed. In Control Center the Display Power Management Option is also turned off. How do I keep it from turning of the monitor?

Try adding the

Option "NoPM" "true"

to your xorg.confs serverflags section.



Cheers,
