Screen Blanking/non-X

I've poked around looking for an answer to this for some time, but haven't found quite what I'm looking for.

What controls screen blanking for plain VT console sessions?

Is it a function of APM? Or something in SVGA? It doesn't seem to be the bios, as altering those settings doesn't seem to change anything. What I want to do is change the timeout, or possibly turn it off.

The machine in question is a Thinkpad 390E.
