I do not know how to properly explain this but i'm using Ubuntu Server to run RetroPie without overhead of Ubuntu Desktop. Basically, when Ubuntu Server is running in non-text mode, after around 10 minutes, the screen turns off. But by plugging in a mouse and moving it, the screen turns back on.
Is there any way to disable Ubuntu Server GUI Screensaver?
Edit: Turns out this non-text mode is aplications launching in a desktop like environment? The desktop like environment takes up the entire screen, it has a white background, and has mouse support. When i right click, it gives me a right-click menu. And when i press ALT + TAB, it allows me to switch between applications.
