How does one activate screen blanking on the vt's these days?

I have an ancient 32-bit x86 Acer mini laptop running as a server where
the X11 greeter just started crashing in a tight loop.  I've turned the
graphical login off but that leaves me with the first vt's login prompt
displaying.  Whatever is responsible for blanking the screen seems not
to be doing its thing.  Where is the screen blank timer configuration
these days?  It has been so long and things have changed so much that
google is useless.   I assume systemd has absorbed that function by now
but I can't find it.   /etc/systemd/logind.conf doesn't seem to have a
screenblank setting even though it seems to have everything else.
