Setterm -powerdown 2 -store not saving settings after reboot

Any time I reboot I have to retype setterm -powerdown 2 -store at the console to get the monitor to switch off. Is there a way to get the setting to stick?

alias reboot="reboot && setterm -powerdown 2 -store"
and save it in your ~/.bashrc, or, for system wide changes, /etc/bashrc.
