Sleep and wakeup HDMI

Hi folks,

I am using IMX8MP Verdin development board(5.4.161 BSP) with HDMI display.

In verdin development board Native and DSI-HDMI adapter available. How to sleep native HDMI, I have also referred below link.

echo off > /sys/class/drm/card1-HDMI-A-1/status
echo on > /sys/class/drm/card1-HDMI-A-1/status

Using this command I think HDMI is enable/disable. Can you please clear more on this and how to sleep HDMI?

Hi @kishan ,

Yes, these two commands is to enable/display HDMI output.
For sleep mode, you need to use weston.ini. More info refer here

Hi @sahil.tx,

using weston.ini i have configure idle-time.

but application is running on display and weston is going to sleep when idle-time is reached.

can you please suggest how to resolve this?

or

how to reset idle-time ?

Hi @kishan ,

Please clarify, do you want your application also to sleep when idle timeout is reached for the display?

Hi @sahil.tx,

Currently When an application is running still Weston is going to sleep. So, How to prevent Weston does not go into sleep mode while the application running on display.

@sahil.tx

can we reset idle-time form the client application?
