Apalis T30 Display Off After Boot

I don’t quite know how best to describe this but here goes…

While the Apalis T30 is loading, we are showing a custom splash screen. At some point later (approximately 12 seconds), the splash screen disappears, the display turns off and then maybe 3/4 seconds later, the display comes back on again and shows the desktop (well, actually our custom application set to run at startup).

Is there any way to get rid of this 3/4 seconds “off” time for the screen so that the splash screen is displayed right up until the custom application is launched?

This “pause” where the user is presented with a blank screen is causing them some concern as they think that the system is off at this point. Are there any viable workarounds?

What exact hardware and software versions of things are you talking about?

I guess maybe what you are looking for would be seamless hand/take over of the framebuffer. We would need to know the exact use case e.g. how/what exactly does the splash screen and how/what exactly your custom application does afterwards.
