Power Saver Add on

#1

I’ve just tried adding the power saver addon to one of my setups, this is the first time I’ve used this, but it isn’t switching the attached screen off/on as expected.

Maybe it’s something I’ve not done correctly?

The monitor that the Pi is connected to does power on/off when the Pi is powered on/off, so I think this means that it should work via the power saver option.

Currently, the screen just displays the fallback image when all schedules are set to never.

EDIT: Looks like i just needed to be more patient :slight_smile: all is working as expected now.

Should probably make that clearer on the package documentation page: The package only checks the power status once per minute. So if you switch between “screen should be on” and “screen should be off”, I’ll take around a minute before the screen turns off.
