You can turn auto-repeat on or off by using "xset r on|off".

The base X11 protocol, doesn't provide for varying the auto-repeat rate,
which is a capability not supported by all systems.

Some pre-R6 servers may provide command-line flags to set the rate at
start-up time. If you have control over server start-up (see the man pages
for xinit and xdm), you can invoke the server with the chosen settings; for
example, you can start the R5 Xsun sample server with the options "-ar1 350
-ar2 30" to reduce the sensitivity of the keyboard.

The R6 X Keyboard Extension provides a vendor-independent way to control
repeat delay and rate.
