Hi!
I am using now Puppy in my Asus eeepc and I sometimes use it with a bigger vga monitor. I found a way to turn the netbook screen off:
Code:
xrandr --output LVDS1 --off


But I haven't found yet a way to turn it back on (except restarting X server). I've tried:
xrandr --output LVDS1 --auto
xrandr --output LVDS1 --output mode 1024x600 rate 60

And some other combinations but have not succeeded yet. Any idea how to do it? or anyother script or program that may work?

Thanks!

I´m back! I'm afraid it didn't work. Turns off the screen but doesn't turn it back on... Crying or Very sad
Still restarting X server to do the trick

EDIT: It works, but I have to start puppy with the vga monitor plugged in (or restart X server with it)

Thanks! Laughing

Hmm bum ... seems like a xorg/xrandr quirk... sounds like some feverish web searching needed.

Not likely but switching terminals sometimes helps.. ctrl-alt-F1/2/3 stuff. I have a netbook that goes into weird mode if screensaver engaged and that gets it back.

Just a stab in the dark (screen)
