From what I understand, the Hyperpixel can be configured to go to sleep and wake up on touch. I have the following configuration:
OctoPrint running from OctoPi image distro
OctoScreen (being displayed on the Hyperpixel)
I have everything set up and working, however the display never goes to sleep, and I’d like the display to go to sleep after 5 or 10 minutes of inactivity, and wake when it is touched. From what I understand, this is a Hyperpixel setting, not an OctoScreen setting.
I read the Disabling Power Save section (https://github.com/pimoroni/hyperpixel), thinking I would do the opposite (since I want to ENable power save), but this hasn’t panned out. Here is a running commentary:
To prevent console blanking (framebuffer/text console), edit /etc/kbd/config
/etc/kbd/config doesn’t exist
append consoleblank=0 to the boot command in /boot/cmdline.txt
I added consoleblank to cmdline.txt, and it is now:
console=serial0,115200 console=tty1 root=PARTUUID=6c586e13-02 rootfstype=ext4 elevator=deadline fsck.repair=yes rootwait consoleblank=60
…but the screen didn’t go to sleep.
To prevent X11 sessions from making your HyperPixel sleepy (DPMS power saving), add this line to /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart:
/etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart doesn’t exist
So I’m kinda at a loss and thought I’d reach out for some help on how do I enable sleeping the display.
