    Could someone write me how to correctly disable showing a screen blanker in my application for MorphOS? And how to enable it when closing the application? I assume that when I disable a blanker, I should re-enable it for back to a user settings (like in e.g. a video player).
    Thank you.

    Easy: intuition/screens.h

    Perform a SA_StopBlanker, TRUE.

    Make sure you read the comment in that section or you will break blanker system support as every TRUE set will be nested and needs to be undone by setting it to FALSE.

    Thank you. I will follow this suggestion. 👍
    I noticed that I added SA_StopBlander to OpenScreenTags() but I forgot set it to FALSE. :)

    @geit:
    I have tried this solution. It works well with software blankers and turning a monitor off. I will add proper modification in all demos.
    Thank you for help!
