It depends of what you call a "page".
In big lines:
Normally, if the background-image is a background image in the body, it
is always displayed acros the screen, whatever little text there is.
If the bg-img is put in a <div>-container for "page-content" (with the
text in it), you can give that box the width and height of your image.
But the height can be tricky - the container has to stretch when there
is much text, or when the visitor is enlarging the font-size.
With a min-height you can enable not-IE browsers to stretch the
container in case there is too much text. And then you have the choice
to repeat the bg-img vertically, or just give a background color for the
part of the text "under" the image.
But maybe you have a design that is not that simple. Then you can post
some more information, with a link to a testpage, so we can see what it
