I would like it to shut off after about 30 seconds.
txs

Yes, that should be possible.

Connect to Volumio via ssh. Then
Code: Select all
sudo nano /opt/volumiokiosk.sh

and make the second to fourth line look like this
Code: Select all
xset +dpms
xset s blank
xset dpms 0 0 30

I'm using Volumio with the screen timeout configuration from this post, works like a charm thank you so much!

There's just one problem left for me. I've installed kodi over the webinterface as a plugin.

Now Volumio will boot directly into kodi after power on which is great. However the screen timeout kicks in after 30 seconds and I'm not able to wake it up by touching it. Within the Volumio interface it was possible to wake the screen again.

Has anyone else ran into this issue?
