We have a server in my office we reference a lot. After X time period it would fall asleep and someone would have to hit the keyboard to see the latest information. After digging for a bit (and never really finding the answer) I figured it out and decided to document it because I will forget next time this occurs!
setterm -blank 0 setterm -powersave off
You have to do this from the terminal console and not a remote shell (which, would actually make no sense) or you will see this message:
cannot (un)set powersave mode
