That worked for me but the next time I rebooted it no longer
worked. I would like to destroy delete disable remove uninstall
any and all screen savers and I get the impression all I can do is run the damn thing and set it to 720 minutes. What an idiotic fucntion. Some of us hate screensavers and nuke em as soon as theya re found. Now if only I could find it. Mandrake 9.1.
the other think that worked sometimes was
setterm -blank 0
though I dont think it worked.
And there is no /etc/defaults/rc.conf with which I can
say xset -dpms
Bunch of idiots think I want screensavers......I want to have some control of it (As I slam the keyboard again to get rid of the blank)
Pretty soon the keys will be popping out of that keyboard
(To illustrate how stupid and disliked this function is to some of us)
IF you insist on screen savers fine but leave me out of it Jeeze.
