The CERN VM (all projects) blanks the screen of the virtual console after some minutes of userĀ“s inactivity.
This is useless as there is no real hardware that must be protected but it is very annoying if you monitor the progress of the WUs.

I kindly ask if this can be switched off by adding the kernel parameter "consoleblank=0" to the bootmanager.
