    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

    xset -dpms
