Turning off the blanker
#1
OK, I used to know how to do this.
What I want to do is permanently turn off the blanker (so the screen always stays on) for all my templates.
I can't remember if there is a command line switch for the Interface Viewer or if I run a command when loading or what....
Would appreciate a pointer.
Thx.
Mike

By default it won't happen. So, if it is, then it's probably being enabled in an OnPreload or OnLoad command in the main template. And you can set up some buttons in some utility type template to control it if you want as well.

OK, so what I did to the startup template that I load is the following in Actions:

[OnPreload]

[OnLoad]
IntfViewer::SetBlankOpts(0)

[OnTimeout]

Using RDP the display would still blank in 60 seconds. Using RIVA it didn't blank. Turned out to be the screensaver in Windows. I had setup a new user account and remote login and didn't catch that I had to change this on a by user basis.

As usual, thanks.

Oops I should have thought to ask about that. Never assume anything...
