@jimbob - My bad, yes, I am referring to options under the "Power Options." I only have two under Settings>System>Shutdown functions as well. I am not sure how to modify this without further study.

What is your use case? You want the system (root user) to enable the service via systemctl but you want the unprivileged user (kodi) to be able to stop it dropping back to the TTY/login screen?

No I only have Shutdown and Suspend. The Kodi wiki says Quit, but Exit, Quit and systemctl stop surely all do the same thing. I was wondering if the missing options were a deliberate design choice for the standalone service so as not to logout leaving the device in a potentially unusable state. Looking at the options you've listed I wonder if you're talking about the general power menu, whereas I am talking about the Power Saving -> Shutdown function menu?

You should have 5 options, exit, power off system, custom shutdown timer, suspend, and reboot. There is not an option to quit. You do that on the terminal via a call to systemctl like any other service.

In Settings -> System -> Power Saving -> Shutdown function I only have Shutdown and Suspend, ie, no Quit. Is this expected?

@zynex - As ghen pointed out, that can lead to a loop. Plus, if the user selected "exit" from the GUI, it would force a restart of kodi.

That's not very nice when kodi fails to start for some reason, causing a loop.

Just a thought, but shouldn't the systemd service have Restart=always instead of Restart=on-abort? Sometimes you want to restart kodi without restarting the computer itself. Quitting Kodi won't restart the app if you have "on-abort".

I have added "-s 0" to the Xorg options directly in the kodi.service file and it seems to be working now.

First off, I discovered that I did not have xset installed. I have installed it and I see that it is in /usr/bin/xset.

Now, I have tried using both a .xprofile and a .xinitrc file in /var/lib/kodi. I have also tried with giving the full path to xset. Nothing so far has worked, and after some time the TV declares that there is no signal. If I hit a key or wiggle a mouse then the video comes back.

@Renfield - The kodi user has a home dir, you mentioned it, /var/lib/kodi/
