Hi Richard,

I don't have a means of preventing screen blanking.  My machine doesn't have 
windows installed on it and I don't have an easy way of seeing what acpi 
commands the windows code is using. Maybe some of the tools such as 
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/hardware/gg463009.aspx might provide 
some insight into what magic acpi call is being used to keep the screen on.
