Prevent un-blanking due to input events


I am working on OMAP3530 based platform. We are using Linux-2.6.22.

How can I prevent (un)blanking of the frame buffer (virtual terminal) due to input device events in Linux?

Thanks and Regards,

Ruchi Sirauthiya

Perhaps you can use setterm, eg

setterm -blank 0


buffer, frame, linux, terminal, virtual
