Did you try this from the suggestions at the links?  I didn't, but the
console has not changed that drastically lately because the emphasis
has been on the GUI, so it should still work.

The only permanent solution is to add consoleblank=0 to the kernel
command-line. You can view the value (which defaults to 600 seconds) in:


The default console blanking behavior is baked into the kernel at
compile time. It is configurable at boot time with the paramater
consoleblank=, or in userspace with setterm. From the kernel
documentation (kernel-parameters.txt):

consoleblank=  [KNL] The console blank (screen saver) timeout in
               seconds. Defaults to 10*60 = 10mins. A value of 0
               disables the blank timer.

I see it is still documented in the kernel Documentation, so I don't
think it has gone away, and the path is still there on my system.
