Thank you. Tested in OSMC, and working perfectly.

TY for the update.

I tried this out on my pi 2 with Openelec using Aeon Nova skin. It works correctly, but seems to have an odd side-effect. After it is activated via timeout or preview, I get the undervoltage warning icon pop up when flipping through the main menu options... If I reboot, i.e. Kodi before screensaver runs, there is no warning. Once it is ran once, I get the warning consistently and have noticed some larger options run slower than before the screensaver ran.

thanks for this @timker.
i tried it on OSMC. And it turns the HDMI off, but no matter which key i press, it doesn't wake up.
in fact, i have speakers connected to the jack and i can hear the sound from navigating through the menu, but the HDMI is not coming back ...
is there any way to figure out whats wrong?!

thx

I think that this is the most comfortable way to archive it: https://www.reddit.com/r/raspberry_pi/co..._kodixbmc/

Unfortunately, it will restart kodi at the end, which is sad but okay.

If I go to screensaver->test (pimon 0.3.2) and the screen blanks I cant wakeup the screen again by pressing any key. Waking from timeout works without problems. Someone else can reproduce this? Iam on kody17Alpha but I have this issue also on kodi16

I have to correct myself: This only happens if I watch TV and then go to screensaver->test. I do this because I often want my tv to have only audio enabled and the screen disabled to fall asleep.
This is maybe more an kodi issue than an pimon issue.
