3.2.7 screensaver stuck on 60 secs
Just upgraded to 3.2.7, whatever I set the screensaver timeout to it always activates after 60 secs.
I presume this is a bug, the screensaver ignores whatever timeout value I select and always blanks the screen after 60 seconds, can anyone else confirm if they see this behaviour?
(PanelDue 7i v.3.0)
there were some similar reports as well.
Can you confirm that you are using RRF 3.2?
Yes, I saw that other post. I have no problem waking the screen, just can't change or disable the timeout value.
Solved - seems there is a setting "always dim" which turns the screen off after 60 seconds and overrides the actual screensaver. Wasn't there on my last code level and I wasn't expecting there to be 2 different screensaver type functions.
@ByteSized Before PanelDueFirmware 3.2.0 there only was the dimming function. 3.2.0 added a screensaver. The former will reduce the brightness of your display to 1/8 of your regular setting - depending on how dim your display already is set this will effectively disable the backlight.
The screensaver will respect that dimming setting. If the screen is already dimmed (depending on the setting for dimming) it will just switch to the screensaver screen. Otherwise it will dim to 1/4 of the regular display brightness - this was done to further save the screen from wearing out and since there is no useful information displayed anyway the screen can be dimmed.
I hope this explains what you experienced.
