If You’re Archlinux install is causing the monitor to timeout and go blank after a short period (600 seconds default) and u find it a pain as there is no power management to disable it in some WM’s, here is what we do to disable the monitor timeouts …
1. pacman -S xorg-xset
(User preference utility for X)
2. add these commands to execute at boot (autostart)
Modifying DPMS and screensaver settings using xset
setterm -blank 0 -powerdown 0
Alternatively you can disable console blanking permanently using the following command:
echo -ne “\033[9;0]” >> /etc/issue
You can run the first command, in terminal, to persist add it to ~/.xinitrc
or you can add above commands in terminal (not as root) before you want to kick back and watch a movie without the screen timing out.
check config with xset -q
will not work as root

Replay Video Capture software is the best way to make production quality videos from hard-to-record sources, including:
ANY Video Web Site, using ANY streaming protocol
Video Chat sessions
This has to be one of my favourite pieces of software out there, unfortunately its only for windows platforms so i tend to keep windows 7 in virtual box for the purpose of using this. Recently i had a friend looking for some way to capture his screen for the sole purpose of doing tutorials , someone pointed him to a $300 application , but me being the frugal scotsman pointed him in this direction , he was impressed and apparently the only thing it lacked was some kind of pointer , i suggested using a red cursor whilst doing the tutorials to act as the missing pointer.
We all from time to time would like the idea of capturing whatever is on our screens , be it a video , picture , or even if someone in your G+ hangout is playing with a truncheon, i find this app to do the job exceedingly well, have a look at the video below and if u feel its something you could use i just might be able to help.
