screensaver on DS20E

Hola,
I have a Tru64 5.1A Compaq Alpha Server DS20E computer and after some minutes without using it the screen goes blank. If the application is active, I can't recover the mouse pointer activity (the screen freezes) and I have to turn off the computer at all. How do I turn off this "screensaver"? Do you why the computer is doing this?
Thanks in advance.

Hi,

You may check if the screensaver is on.

1. on the CDE, click on style manager
2. click the screen icon
3. check if the sreensaver is set to on
4. if yes, change it to off and click ok.

Hope this helps.

Hi Ronny,
Thanks for the answer but I don't have this CDE. Are commands I can use to deactivate this "screensaver feature"?
Thanks in advance.

Re: screensaver on DS20E

Hi,

I have tried the following and work for my system. Hope this helps.

Issue this command,
# xset -q

Check the "Screen Saver" setting, the timeout should be set to 0 to disable.

You can change the setting by,
# xset s 0

Regards
