Using Power Management

Power Managing Monitors in a Non-Windowing Environment

When you are not in a windowing environment, the Screen Saver settings you made through the CDE Style Manager or the OpenWindows Properties windows do not have any effect.

You can control the display when operating at the console level by editing the contents of the /etc/power.conf file. This is covered in Appendix A, Configuring Power Management Using the Command Line.
