Black out with cursor
Dear Friends, as I don’t know how this is called, I didn’t find anything which would help me. Therefore, I decided to open a new topic.
Since a few weeks, my perfectly working MM started to enter into a kind of sleep mode where the screen blacks out and the mouse cursor is visible. This never happened before. I guess it started with an update a couple of weeks ago.
Any idea? Any fixes?
Same issue here. Ever since I installed MMM-GoogleMapsTraffic I’ve been getting the black screen with cursor every week or so.
@schrutesbeets get the version from my github site, I fix a problem in the other repo
@sdetweil Between us, to be honest I dont even know. I just remember that all of a sudden from one day to the other my BMW Connected App didnt work and so did the Unsplash connection resulting in showing no background immages in my walberry module.
Since this I also have issues with my monitor running into this black screen mode where you can still see the cursor.
Tried the hack with installing the screensave thingee but didnt help so far.
I guess this is led to installing some modules which might update some core data in the background as well. Maybe a new version of python or so was installed in the background and this led to issues. I have no idea as i am an absolut noob.
Maybe others had also the same issues and know how to handle.
@duxnobis is screen blanking turned off in the pi preferences? (also can do from raspi-congig)
@sdetweil just checked. Yes its disabled.
