How do I disable the blank console “screensaver” on Ubuntu Server?

The easiest way is to add the parameter 

1
consoleblank=0

 to your kernel command-line at boot-time.

  • Open /etc/default/grub in your favorite editor; you will need to use sudo (for vi, nano, etc.) or gksudo (for gedit, etc.).
  • Then add consoleblank=0 to the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=, parameter.
  • e.g. yours may say:
    1
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash consoleblank=0"

Then run sudo update-grub, and reboot.
