Well Linux in general has a "powersaving" or "screensaving" feature
don't know the exact meaning/use of it, but anyway in console, if you
don't touch the keyboard for a while the screen will blank itself.
Pressing any key will wake it up again. Don't know if this is the thing
you are experiencing...
