I found a workaround. I use this script https://chdk.fandom.com/wiki/Ultimate_Intervalometer

And put the option "Display off mode" to [playkey]. And it works, but.... everytime when shoots the display turns on again...and after sleeps again... I wanted fully turned off display...

If the motion-detector script works for You, You could set Trigger Threshold f=0
or write...
    if ( zones >= 0 ) then   :D

Edit: Probably it needs some more tweaks to get a constant interval.

Is review enabled in the canon firmware? On some cameras, this causes the display to get turned back on. Normally, it should not come back on after shooting when using set_lcd_display, but it's possible some camera models behave differently.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

No, I turned off the review in the beginning with my experiments, but thanks for answering.
