console mode sleep ??

hello, i running redhat 9 in init3 level.. every time when i'm not touch any key on the keyboard for about 10 minutes or so, it will automate go sleep mode, my monitor setting energy saving it's off and the BIOS power saving it's disable too.. so i wonder where i could set the setting in the console.. so it doesn't go to suspend.. or sleep?
the monitor light is green after it went sleep....

Somewhere in your display settings or monitor settings there is a setting to turn on/off power save feature.

Also having DPMS set to on in your /etc/X11/XF86Config file may also trigger power save.

For the settings in your window manager, I can't locate it right now, but I know its there I just screwed wityh mine 2 days ago. (power save 15 minutes 120 minutes etc etc)
