How to prevent IGEL OS screen from sleeping between time period and wake up again next day?


i have requirement screen shouldn’t timeout in working hours between 7 -6pm and then go for sleep and wakeup screen again on next day. as we already have screensaver settings set, i would think of remove the timeout settings, apply suspend job and wakeup job accordingly. do you suggest any better option for this requirement.


For the moment (even if we already asked) there is no real support for: “do action bla if local time of endpoint is ..”.

For the moment, I would see a workaround in having a combination of:

systemd-timers (a local scheduled task, so to say)

if time is 6-7am: do action a (disable Screensaver/Suspend), oustide action b (activate Screensaver / Suspend)
