This is awesome! I have one issue though. I'm using Chromium in kiosk mode on my Pi and after turning the screen on again it's just dark. I've found a script to refresh the page but to no avail. Has anyone else had this problem?

I had this problem and fixed it by uncommenting two lines in /boot/config.txt to force HDMI ouptut. See the article below about, but basically uncomment:
#hdmi_force_hotplug=1
#hdmi_drive=2
