When using the screensaver add-on from your link, after a period of inactivity the vero’s led turns red, then the monitor powers off the backlight.
After maybe 20 seconds the backlight returns, although the image is a black screen. The monitor never enters standby mode (no message, no change in monitor’s led status colour).
In contrast, using ‘Suspend’ from the power menu, the Vero’s led turns red, the monitor powers off the display/backlight for a few seconds, then it powers back up to show an in-built ‘no signal’ message. A few seconds later the monitor powers off again, with its own led changing colour to confirm this.
I enabled debug logging and notification logs, then rebooted.
I waited for the screensaver to activate, then after a minute or so I used the remote’s ‘ok’ button, navigated to the power menu, and selected ‘suspend’.
In the log, after the 2 minute timeout I set for the screensaver, I can see the debug messages as set in the screensaver’s gui.py.
I can also see the log messages for the activation of the Suspend mode (whereby the display correctly powers down).
Happy to upload the log file from /home/osmc/.kodi/temp/kodi.log if you provide a location
