I've tried several X variations:
1- setterm -blank 0
2- xset s noblank
3- xset -dpms
4- xset s off
5- look for a line containing 'setterm' in /etc/rc.d/ and comment it out
(no such line in ls -lR of that directory)
None of these work.
The trouble appears to be:
1- The keyboard events received through USB do not reset
the blanking timer.
2- Requesting no blanking (via 'setterm -blank 0') is ignored.
