I just loaded Debian onto a live usb today for the first time. I successfully killed my laptops annoying trackpad with the synclient command, but now I can't figure out how to get Debian to stop putting my mouse to sleep everytime I stop using it for a few seconds. Does anyone know how to disable this or at the very least extend the time.
