How do you switch on / off, wake up yours?

I use the same times but instead of changing the display power I use the built in tvservice app
0 23 * * * /opt/vc/bin/tvservice -o
0 6 * * * /opt/vc/bin/tvservice -p

I’m with cowboysdude,
MMM-ModuleScheduler combined with MMM-Remote-Control.
Scheduler sends MonitorOn and Off’s to Remote.
Works like a dream!
I used a similar method to schedule a cron job to control a transistor placed over the push button of my tv. This lets me power the TV on and off instead of using the HDMI CEC method used for computer monitors.
I use MMM-ModuleScheduler for my mirror in the bathroom BUT my 32" Control Center I use:
Works like a charm

I just use a cron job to put the screen to sleep at 11pm and turn it back on at 7am. My schedule is routine enough that this works well for me.
00 23 * * * /home/pi/monitor-off.sh >/dev/null # JOB_ID_1 0 7 * * * /home/pi/monitor-on.sh >/dev/null # JOB_ID_2
#!/bin/bash vcgencmd display_power 0 # export DISPLAY=:0.0 # xset dpms force off
#!/bin/bash vcgencmd display_power 1 # export DISPLAY=:0 # xset dpms force on # xset s reset
I will give it a try
