    v273 v274  
    6969 * (proper) Nice. Why rejected? I am going to look into your new profile. And if it's not too hard, I will also start creating profiles.
    7070 * Reject because this shouldn't be part of TorBOX but part of Ubuntu and/or TPO.

    72 == do not turn off screen after a while [WORKS FOR ME] ==
    73  * (proper) While this is useful on bare metal, it's a bad look and feel when using virtual machines. The screen shouldn't black out automatically after a while. Provide an optional configuration how to stop it.
    74  * (anonymous) use at your own risk: sudo sh -c 'echo "setterm -blank 0 -powersave off -powerdown 0 > /dev/null 2>&1" >> /etc/bash.bashrc'
    75  * (proper) I am testing to put this into /etc/rc.local. Still wondering there is no configuration file for it.
    76  * (proper) I added "setterm -blank 0 -powersave off -powerdown 0 > /dev/null 2>&1" at the end of /etc/bash.bashrc. No idea why, but it doesn't work. In /etc/rc.local "setterm -blank 0 -powersave off -powerdown 0" doesn't work either. When you type that command in console, then it stays activated until the next reboot. Strange.
    77  * (anonymous) then try .bashrc
    78  * (proper) It's really crazy but none of this is working.
    79  * (anonymous) you need to log out and back in again to apply the change. Also, .bashrc in /home/user/ not /root
    80  * (proper) That's what I used and I restarted.
    81  * (anonymous) It works for me (Ubuntu/Tor-Gateway.ova) Try the following: before the setterm line add something like 'echo "disabling screen blanking", log out and in again - do you see that echoed above the command prompt?  If not bashrc isn't read for some reason.
