Using xscreensaver I'm trying to suspend/blank the screen (essentially turn it off to save power) without locking but I don't seem to be able to do this. I'm using the official 7" touchscreen.
I have the following settings:
- Mode: Blank Screen Only
- Blank After: 2 minutes
- Cycle After: 0 minutes
- Lock Screen After: un-checked (0 minutes) - I thought this would stop the screen from locking.
Advanced > Display Power Management:
- Power Management Enabled: checked
- Standby After: 2 minutes
- Suspend After: 2 minutes
- Off After: 2 minutes
- Quick Power-off in Blank Only Mode: checked
The screen goes blank and I believe turns off successfully but if I don't immediately touch the screen then it will give me a login screen.
Alternatively if I uncheck "Display Power Management" the screen goes blank and doesn't lock but I believe it's still drawing power, the backlight looks light it's on.
How do I save power without locking the session?
