I’m running the Intel NUC image on a surface pro 4 which is working great except the screen is showing the console 24/7. Does anyone know the commands I could run from ssh to turn the laptop screen off?
How about a smart switch on the monitor power?
That’s the easy way out I took.
This does the trick on most *nixes:
export DISPLAY=:0 && xset dpms force off
Thanks but I’m using a surface pro 4 so it’s the built in display that I need to turn off.
I must have tuned off my brain when I saw ‘NUC’. Sorry.
I tried that but got a xset command not found error from bash so I’m guessing that’s not supported on hassio
Are you using a VM in Windows 10 or actually running HassOS on the Surface as the OS?
Its the Intel NUC directly on the Surface. I loaded ubuntu on a live usb and then burned the hassio image to the surface hard drive. So no windows.
Thank you so much for the idea!!!
I did the same thing on my kid’s old school laptop and got myself a beatiful HA box up and running…
…but, of course, it has the same issue with the screen.
Did you find any way to turn it off?
Have you tried @Bit-River suggestion above? It might work for you.
