Description Joe Barbish 2018-11-20 16:15:16 UTC
The vt default console screen driver doesn't support the rc.conf parameters saver=  or  blanktime=. The boot time console messages has this message,

Configuring vt: blanktime screensaver 

But really has no effect.

rc.conf contains saver="warp" & blanktime="900"

If kern.vty=sc in /boot/loader.conf then they work.

Same effect in amd64 or i386 systems.

blanktime needs CONS_BLANKTIME to be implemented:
