DSM 6.1.3 AMD V1.02b - Is there a way to Turn Screen off using SSH?


Recommended Posts

DSM 6.1 AMD DS3617xs 6.1 Jun's Mod V1.02b.


I installed DSM 6.1.3-15152 on an old Toshiba AMD laptop and its working perfectly so far. 


I need some help figuring out how to turn the LCD off? The Fn button combinations are not working. I could turn the LCD off in other Linux distros but I can't figure out how to do it for Synology.


Any help would be appreciated.

Because DSM is a headless OS meaning it's not supposed to have a monitor attached to the NAS. If the keyboard dimming shortcuts are not working then I guess maybe trying to close the monitor (although that might actually put the whole computer to sleep) or in a worst case scenarios physically disconnecting the monitor from the mother motherboard. That would involve opening the laptop so it might not be practical.


Alternatively you could virtualise DSM with VirtualBox or some other virtual manager giving you control over the computer's basic fonctions.
