My hardware screen on my laptop turns white, when the console times out and blanks, upon idling. I would expect it to normally turn black or turn off the screen entirely. When clicking a button, the screen wakes up and presents the console as normal.
There are no relevant BIOS settings.
I am running Void Linux on an HP EliteBook 8530p laptop and I don't use a desktop environment, only console CLI, thus it's not a problem with X.
- Is it a setting that determines how the "blanking" works?
- Is it possible to change the behaviour of the blanking, so it turns off the screen until a key is pressed?
- If none of the above, can you point me in a direction where I can find out if it's a hardware error?
