I need a way to regain access to my keyboard and screen brigthness.
I always invoke my screensaver from a terminal in XMonad with the following command which I have aliased: setxkbmap -option srvrkeys:none && xdotool key super+shift+b [just toggles a menubar] && alock -b none -i none -c blank & cmatrix && xdotool key super+b [restores menubar] & setxkbmap -option ''
However, this time I had decreased the screen brightness level to 0 before I ran the command because I know how to log back in but this time Im not able to log back in for some reason. I have tried restarting my computer which gives me the grub bootloader and then the initialization feedback screen but then the dark screen from before comes back instead of the console login prompt (yes I usually boot just to the console) and the keyboard doesn't respond.
Im running Parabola GNU/Linux with libreboot on an X200 laptop.
