installing a console screen saver
« on: October 09, 2017, 06:09:23 am »
Hi !

  There was an old topic here that talked about installing green_saver and setting it up.
Unfortunately the files described in the topic are no longer available.

I would like my console to turn off after a few minutes, and I don't know where I could get a working green_saver.ko
for my 2.3.4-RELEASE-p1 (amd64) 

Any suggestion will be more than welcome :)

thanks !

Hi did you find a solution to this? I have 2.4.2-RELEASE (amd64)  version installed on a laptop and can't find a way of disabling monitor which is causing the system to overheat.

Turn it off?

Enable ssh for day-to-day maintenance?

Turn the monitor on for things like upgrades then turn it off again?

It's a laptop screen so there isn't a seperate power button for the for turning the display off.

I think is has to be controlled by pfsense but can't find an a package for that.

For old version of pfsense there was a green_saver.ko module. Wondering if there was something similar
