Hi

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
