How to keep screen alive ?

I am going to deploy an application that requires that the screen not blank out. I believe I've got all the hardware (bios) issues covered but the screen still blanks out. This system is based on Knoppix but was modified for an even smaller foot print.

Any assistance appreciated - TIA

Hi jonald,
If your application runs in text mode, the proper command is
setterm -blank 0
. If it runs in graphics mode, you have to set your window manager to disable "screen saver".
