Hyperpixel 4.0 Putting Display to Sleep


Is it possible to turn the display on and off via the command line please?

Failing that, can the display be dimmed via command line?



DISPLAY=:0.0 xset dpms force off should work. It will turn back on again if you touch it, hit a keyboard key or move a mouse.

Or you can use DISPLAY=:0.0 xset dpms force on to turn it back on again.


Excellent!! My plan its to turn the display on via ssh when motion is detected, and then off again after a set time, all linked into Home Assistant for automation. :)
