    Morning everyone!

    When I was watching my son play with the retropie after 10 minutes the screen goes blank, the sound keeps playing and I can quit but then the Pi freezes.

    Is this something to do with the Jessie build?

    I’m using a Pi2

    Are you getting any colored squares on the top right of the screen before it goes black? A solid red one or a 4 colored one? Just an thought but those mean either over heating or under powered and can cause your issue.

    The console blanker is activating – due to a Debian Jessie bug.

    2 issues on 3.4 that weren't there on 3.3
