UNSOLVED MagicMirror Sleep
Evening All ,
Since the day i newly installed my MagicMirror i’m havind a weird issue i can’t explan.
It starts when the screen is on. The motion sensor detects motion and restarts the timer. All fine so far. When the timer runs out (30 minutes ) the screen get’s turned off by HDMI-CEC.
So far so good.
When i walk in front of the sensor some time later, the screen turns as i see the channel notification in the upper corner of the screen. After that it turns black.
It looks like MagicMirror is in some kind a sleep mode or something. I disabled screensaver etc.
sudo nano /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart
@lxpanel --profile LXDE @pcmanfm --desktop --profile LXDE @xscreensaver -no-splash @xset s off # don't activate screensaver @xset -dpms # disable DPMS (Energy Star) features. @xset s noblank # don't blank the video device
@mdlefevere if you move the mouse, does it wake up?
use my screensaveroff script

Yes. If i move the mouse the screen lights up and i see the mouse. If i then leave it it dissapears and the screen goes black again.
Executed the script with the command. Does is need to show something on screen?. It just goes to the next line:
@mdlefevere hm it should have reported
of already or turning off
so you need to go to the preferences menu
top left of desktop, pi config, turn off screen blanking
Screen blanking is off.
I also tried to install XScreensaver and disable that. It looked like it worked but a few days later it doesn’t.
@mdlefevere ifyou stop MM, and just let it sit, does the screen blank?
No. When i just leave it on the raspbian screen it stays on.
I’m going to think it has something to do with NewPir V3 for my PIR sensor, but don’t know how to rule that out.
