I just started using a new Amlogic device X96 with s905x board (2GB/16GB) and running LE 8.0.1b image off a Sandisk microsd card. Everything seems to be working fine and I am pleased with the results. However one thing is bothering me and reading/searching various boards didn't help. The screensaver (dim) is set to trigger after 10 minutes of idle time and once it goes to dim, I am not able to bring back the device to respond and only thing I could do at this point to reboot by unplugging. I am running Kodi with a MySQL database on a server. The device is connected to a Samsung TV via a receiver and CEC is disabled. Audio is pass through HDMI. Network is hardwired. X96 remote allows me to power down the box but takes about 20 seconds to boot up. I prefer to leave it on all the times. Is there something I can look into?
PS: I have another Kodi build on Intel NUC/Win10 and don't see this issue.
