How to prevent the screen from dimming (no X/wm/desktop)?
Hey. I'm playing around with some stuff on my pinebook and I've noticed that if I'm in a tty, or don't even have X installed at all, the screen still dims after a few minutes regardless of whether or not I'm plugged into power.  I will just be sitting at a command line typing something and the screen goes dark.

/sys/class/backlight/edp-backlight/brightness changes from 4096 to 2047.

If not X, what is controlling this and how do I prevent it?  Is there a kernel setting I can configure or something? 

I also don't want to force max brightness 100% of the time, I would still like to be able to control brightness manually

Thank you Smile
