another X and monitor question

This is hardware-specific, and you may have an APM issue which needs to be
fixed by recompiling the kernel.  You may also simply have the TERM
(bash) or term (tcsh) environment variable set incorrectly.  If you can
run X on an i386 machine, you probably want "linux" for the terminal type.

The command you are looking for is "setterm -half-bright off" but you need
to see "man setterm" for the details.  Your distribution may not include
the "setterm" command; Debian provides it as part of the required
"util-linux" package which is handled by initial installation.
