i figured. :-)
unfortunately kernel console blanking was never tied to the dcon --
i think it's one of several issues with bare console use on the
XO. (the console has never been a priority.)
you can install olpc-kbdshim and olpc-powerd, and adjust the
powerd config to never dim and/or blank the display without ever
suspending. the fedora F9 packages should work for this.
