Stop Raspbian Buster on Raspberri Pi Stop Blanking Screen

  • By default a Raspbian install puts the screen to sleep every ten minutes. This power savings and eco setting is nice, sometimes, but generally really annoying. And there is no default installed tool to modify or disable it.

    But you can do so with the command line using the xset commands. Try this...

    xset s 0
    xset -dpms

    That's it. You don't do this as "root" but as the user that you are using the desktop as. So no "sudo" or anything like that.

    You can verify your settings with xset, too.

    xset -q
