Monitor is getting off in RHEL4 while working


I have installed RHEL4 in my IBM think pad. It is worling fine. But, sometimes during working automatically my monitor is getting off. It resumes once I touch the touch pad or hit any key in the key board. I tried in the scree saver settings. But Nothing worked for me. Could anyone help me to solve this problem Thanks a lot in advance.

It is probably a setting which can be controlled/set in many places (the BIOS, xset, and setterm (and probably other places)) before/during the boot process.

Also, if English may not be your native tongue, the monitor “turns off” or “is turning off during work” (“getting off” has a connotation very different from that which you intended).
