I don't know how to take screenshots on pi .
Press the [Print Screen] key.
A .png file will be created in the current folder.

Another way is to remote connect with VNC and use the remote computer. If Windows then [Alt] [Print Screen].

Re: raspberry pi display goes back after a while

By default the Raspbian OS (desktop) will blank the screen after 10 minutes of no keyboard/mouse activity.
The timeout can be increased or totally disabled.

Hi, The 5V USB power is limited to 1.2A by the USB controller chip. That is usually enough to run 1 HDD only. Providing more Amps to the RPi power input will not help.

Re: Buster + Headless + Teamviewer + no FrameBuffer = FAILURE

Use sudo raspi-config to set a forced screen resolution. (Choose anything other than monitor default). The reason is that by default (RPi4), if no screen is connected at boot then a display device is not created. Without a display device the GUI desktop does not start so any program that requires GU...
