Kali Screen Blanking

I was tired of the LCD screen hooked up to my pi going to sleep, this page had an answer that solved my problem.

Basically, the solution that worked for my involved x11-xserver-utils.

sudo apt-get install x11-xserver-utils

I then had to create a file named ~/.xinitrc. I use vim as my basic goto editor but there is always nano.

vim ~/.xinitrc

Inside the file, I added the following lines of code.

xset s off # don't activate screensaver
xset -dpms # disable DPMS (Energy Star) features.
xset s noblank # don't blank the video device

exec /etc/alternatives/x-session-manager # start lxde

Complete. Thanks  goes to Spyslab.
