Hi all,

I'm looking for a similar setting tool like the "power options" in Windows XP (sorry to mention "Windows" Wink )
The problem I have with Puppy is that my monitor is turning black after about 30 minutes.

I already tried to turn off the screensaver, and switched the bios setting to turn on the monitor always, but no luck. I guess there must be some power options in Puppy.

Maybe you can help me?

Thanks.

DPMS (Energy Star) features can be disabled with
Code:
xset -dpms

In order to make the setting persistent, I guess the command can be included in /etc/rc.d/rc.local (or in /root/.xinitrc ?)

DPMS settings are documented at http://linux.die.net/man/1/xset

Is there a similar command for hard disks? I want to turn them off when not in use.
