Hi

Is there a command i can use to turn off/on the standard 7inch touch screen display when i dont want it on please?

I am running Pi-Star amatuer radio software on it if that makes any difference?

Thanks

Karl

There isn't. All you can do is set the backlight off.

https://github.com/DougieLawson/backlight_dimmer is a bit off code to dim the backlight to black when there's no touch input on it.
