Tips: Turn monitor always on in Linux

Sometimes we need our monitor always on, for example: advertise terminal, production environment, etc.

For command line:

/bin/setterm -blank 0 -powersave off -powerdown 0

For X Window:

xset s noblank
xset s reset
xset s off
xset -dpms

For more information:

man setterm
man xset

It has been tested on Slackware 13.0.
