{{{
Section "ServerFlags"
    Option "BlankTime" "0"
    Option "StandbyTime" "0"
    Option "SuspendTime" "0"
    Option "OffTime" "0"
EndSection
}}}

== gnome-screensaver ==
Its also good to just remove the screensaver altogether:
{{{
apt-get remove gnome-screensaver
}}}

== /etc/default/rcS ==
Make `fsck` run automatically so that the computer doesn't get stuck on the `fsck` screen waiting for a keyboard prompt.
