Hi Delbert Franz

setterm - set terminal attributes  
setterm [options]

-blank [0-60] (virtual consoles only)
    Sets the interval of inactivity, in minutes, after which the screen will
    be automatically blanked (using APM if available). Without an argument, 
    defaults to 0 (disable console blanking).

install by:
opkg install
