I've set up a laptop running Fedora 13 as a kind-of mini home server. I've installed without a desktop environment so I just have the command line on the screen. I've made a little script that lets me monitor some little programs in the background. If I leave the laptop for about 10 minutes the screen turns off, then after about 30 minutes it goes onto standby. From the command line how do I change the screen/standby timeout and (if possible) the screen brightnes as it's set on it's lowest setting.
I've checked the BIOS (It's an IBM R52 Thinkpad from about 2002) and there are no options for any of the above settings.

The screen brightens is adjusted on the keyboard, there's a button for it =]
Still not figured out the other two things
