Slackware console screen timeout


I've been trying to figure this out on my own but have been unable to do so.

Does anyone know how to modify the amount of inactivity time before the console screen "blanks" on slackware?

In /etc/rc.d/rc.M:
Quote:
# Screen blanks after 15 minutes idle time, and powers down in one hour
# if the kernel supports APM or ACPI power management:
/bin/setterm -blank 15 -powersave powerdown -powerdown 60
