Raspberry Pi 7 inch Touch Display turn off after 30 seconds

Sun Mar 31, 2019 6:08 pm

Hi there,
I recently purchased one of these ... h-display/ which I am currently using with a 3B+ running raspbian.

I also got a camera hooked up to my network and I'm able to view the output of the camera on a website.

I want to achieve that the raspberry pi turns off the screen after 30 seconds. For this I installed xscreensaver which shows a black screen (with backlight on) after 1 minute idling. I want to turn off the backlights too after that minute though!

When there is no video playing, the backlights actually turn off with the current settings - but when the video is running and in fullscreen mode, it doesn't turn off the backlight after 1 minute.

Can someone help me out here?
