I have been scouring the web to try and find this but I keep getting topics explaining how to stop the screen from blanking. I do want my screen to blank after 5 minutes of use and turn of my monitor. I also want to run a script so I can turn off my monitor (which doesn't seem to want to by it self when my pi blanks the screen) and then turn it on again after the blank.
Is there a place where I can specify this in a config file or do i need to disable screen blanking and write a script that listens for mouse or keyboard input over a period of time and do this that way?
I'm running on a RPI3, Jessie with Pixel, and using a Pi-Top.
Thanks in advance
