I have written a simple program to run on the N900 to display a collection of images just like a screen saver. My problem is that the screen dims if I do not touch the screen once in a while. Is there a programming way of stopping the screen from dimming or going to sleep.

I know the battery will drain quickly but I want to be able to leave the device alone and just see the images change over time.

Any ideas would be great.. or even a one line example in python.

dunno about in xterm, but if you install the simple brightness applet there is an option to leave the backlight always on

Don't know about python, but here in Qt
