Turn off screen after auto logoff

Hello,

I am really enjoying this distro but I have not figured out how to get my screen to go blank after auto logoff. How do I achieve this or direct me to the wiki area where I can read this. Thank you!

Please post the output of garuda-inxi.

Can you explain more specifically what you mean by this?

What is "auto logoff"?

Thanks for the response. Maybe I should have worded my question differently:

If you are in Dragonized KDE, and you press Ctrl+Alt+L to logoff, the screen that is shown next remains on indefinitley and I'd like it to turn off, maybe after 10 min or so. INXI Below....

Your post was edited to add code formatting to the terminal output, which you can do by adding three tildes (~) before and after the output
~~~
like this.

Unfortunately, that screen (SDDM) doesn't follow the settings you specify in "Power Management" because those settings are assigned to a specific user. When you are on the SDDM screen, the user profile hasn't been loaded yet.

You are supposed to be able to configure this by editing a config file:

sudo micro /etc/systemd/logind.conf

Thirty or forty lines down there are these lines:

#IdleAction=ignore
#IdleActionSec=30min

If you delete the "#" and change "ignore" to "suspend" (and specify the duration you want) that is supposed to initiate suspend after the specified idle time. However, I do see there are a couple issues open here and here related to it not working for some reason. I just tried it on my machine and couldn't get it to work.

All that to say, I'm afraid I do not have the answer to your question. Hopefully someone else can chime in with a solution.

Welcome to the community! :slightly_smiling_face:

Thank you for the tips on how to add code formatting.

And thank for trying this on your own machine! It is just as easy for me to switch off the monitor when I am done with my sessions. Maybe this is something that developers will add in future updates...

Thanks BluishHumility. You do make me feel welcomed to the community!!!

I have found using hdmi to connect to the monitor, the monitor will time out and shutdown after powering down your computer.
A vga connector does not do that.

Thanks artb!

You are in luck, I presume. Mine is using an HDMI KVM. Maybe it is due to a difference in GPU cards or displays themselves. Mine is a Radian GPU and my display is made by VIOTEK. I've not been really impressed with this monitor. DP has already died within a year! Maybe I need to go over my monitor.

Just a thought if you go into monitor timer settings and turn off sleep the monitor may cooperate and shut down the way you want. instead of say after an hour. My monitor is a wallmart 32 inch rca I got on sale. Nothing special.
