It's not a known bug.
Did that happen only once ? or often ?

OLED save mode only clears the screen and prevent anything to be display on it.
The preenfm2 engine is still the same beside that, no reason to shutdown.

Hi
I have the same issue with the display. The unit goes into screen saving mode and i cant wake it up again. In my case the synth still runs and the pots and buttons works its just the display thats gone dark. I have a newer unit with I assume the latest screen and the latest OS

I don't have any explanation or solution for that.

I'm sure that you already know, but you can disable the screensaver in the settings.
It was done to avoid burning the screen with OLED (when some displays that remain too longs leave a light mark on the display).
I'm not even sure that happens with those characters Oled.
