Post Screen blanking in console only

Is there a way to stop the console screen going blank when not used for a while.

THe reason is that we are using linux on an embedded computer and a keyboard, mouse, and monitor will not be plugged in.
If there is a problem it would be good to plug a screen in and have the console there. ATM the screen is blank.
