I am having trouble with screenblank with v2. Turning on screenblank causes
the screen to blank after the specified period of inactivity. However, I
can not get the screen to turn back on by touching keys on the keyboard. I
have tried all of the settings such as -i /dev/wskbd, -i /dev/console, etc.,
but no luck. The only way I can get the screen to come back on is by
logging on as root.
I am using wscons with 4 screens.
I have not observed this problem with X, but have not had the screen blank
under X either.
Is this a bug in screenblank, or is there some obscure switch that needs to
be set somewhere, such as in wscons.conf?
Thanks in advance.
