I am unable to turn off the panel in standby.


If I only put a completely black picture in the photo folder, it is the same as if I have no photo in it at all.

It comes Splash Screen.

 

To shut off backlight in BeadaPanel standby mode, you can open anitmaion.ini file in console folder by Windows Notepad and uncomment second last line of 

";backlight = 90"

to

"backlight = 0"

Hi. I am having this issue as well. Display doesnt power off with PC. There is no setting in BIOS to kill power to USB ports when PC shuts off. I checked my animation.ini file and it appears mine is already set to '0'. But it still doesnt power off.

Here is a my animation.ini file:

;
;Configuration file for BeadaPanel animation palying
;
;[alameda]
;type            = clock
;keep-aspect-ratio    = true
;pattern            = ball
;valignment        = center
;halignment        = center

;time-format        = %r
;font-desc        = LCDMono2, 72
;foreground-color    = 0xffff0000
;color            = 0xffffffff

height            = 480

“backlight = 0” in hardware section does not mean to shut off power supply of USB port, in fact it means to set backlight level of LCD screen to zero.

Yes, I know it is not meant to shut USB power off. What I was saying is that my USB ports dont power down when system shut down, so display stays on. That is why I was asking about how to make the display power down at shut down.

I thought your instructions set the display to do so. With 'backlight  = 0', it does nothing different. Display stays active when PC shut off.

Wow, cool. That worked.

Thanks.

It did work. But unfortunately, I will have to revert back to old BIOS setting.

It does indeed power down now. But when I restart the PC from powered down state, the PC will start momentarily for a second and shut down, and then restart again to boot to Win10. Every time PC boots. It only does this before when I made certain changes in the BIOS. But only the for first boot after applying changes.

I dont think this is too good for my mechanical storage HD, or any other component for that matter.

What is really strange with the BIOS(V2403, Asus ROG Strix Z490-A), is that there is actually a setting to turn off power to USB at shut down. But it does nothing.

How to turn off a BeadaPanel display(s)
when powering down your PC

Short Answer:
You can power down a BeadaPanel by editing the animation.ini file in the console folder and setting the backlight value to 0.
This will turn off the backlight in standby mode.

Full Procedure for Windows users:

1.            Disable communication with ADIA64 and the BeadaPanel.
In AIDA64: File > Preferences > General and deselect all the checkbox options,
click APPLY and Restart the PC

2.            Next you have to access the storage on the BeadaPanel,
 Run: BeadaTools11 - This file is an application (.exe) file
Download:

Open and click the BeadaTools11.exe file and it will set up a new USB drive
in Windows Explorer.

                *Click BeadaTools11.exe again if you have more than one BeadaPanel display.
Open the new drive and locate the animation.ini file  in the console folder.
Open the animation.ini file and set backlight = 0
SAVE THE FILE
.

3.            Power down the PC and unplug the power cord to get out of BeadaPanel's USB mode.
Power the PC and activate communication with ADIA64 and the BeadaPanel,
File > Preferences > General and select all the checkbox options, click APPLY

Restart your PC,
YOU'RE DONE!
