disable automatic screen blanking in console mode


Hello,

How do yout stop the screen from blanking automaticly while in console mode? I tried commenting out this line in the /etc/rc.d/rc.M
Code:
bin/setterm -blank 15 -powersave powerdown -powerdown 60
but it will still blanks after about 10 or 15 minutes.

Thanks!

Code:
setterm -blank
With no number (or zero) after -blank, it disables blanking.
