HP t5725 Thin Client Deb Etch (4) Power Saver
I have finally managed to flash one of my thin clients using the deban 4 image from HP.
(Trick is to use a separate HP utility to create bootable usb, pointing it to the files extracted to c drive from the hp imaging utility, then copy the flash.dd to the stick, setting USB as boot, pulling the power cord from the back then re-powering )
I'm using this one device to power a 42" screen for digital signage in reception (connects to web page, with firefox kiosk extention for full screen).
My problem is that the device blanks the screen after a period of inactivity and I can't find where to diable that setting. It's a cut down gnome - so gnome-screensaver isn't installed, couldn't see a trace of xscreensaver or gnome-power-manager either.
Any ideas how I can disable the screen blanking? Would save me a jolly hunt.

I have a solution - it was X11.
set the session to run the following commands (gnome session / xsession)
xset q - shows you settings
//for screensaver settings
xset s 0
xset s noexpose
xset s noblank
I also set
