Lightbulb Power Management on Linux


I want to know how can we stop linux from going sleep mode. A blank screen appears after 10 minutes on my Linux box. It is also happening at runlevel 3 so it has nothing to do with xserver. I need to understand how linux manages power.

I ll be looking forward for ur help.

Thanx and regards

Check out the console commands apm (man apm) and acpi (man acpi), they deal with things like power management and so on..
