how to weak up console (monitor and/or keyboard)
sshd died on a production server running Slackware 10.2 with 2.6.11 custom kernel. Everything else is running fine, but now I can't login to restart sshd. I tried to connect monitor and keyboard, but the screen remains in stand-by and does not wake pressing a key. Is there any key combination (other than CTRL-BREAK, ALT-Fx I just tried) to wake up the console? No Power saving utility is installed and, as far I remember, only basic apm support was built into the kernel. I would not hardware reset the system (an IBM X-series) and bring down all services...
