32x32 5mm Matrix + HAT turns off after approx. 4 seconds

Hello,
The problem I had with my 32x32 matrix at first was, that it wouldn't take a signal, and flicker seemingly randomly if it was just plugged into the power, no data. By randomly I mean that it'd start flicker if I put my finger near it, not touching anything. Sounds crazy, and I still don't have an explenation.

Now I got it to work somehow. The problem I have now though, is that regardless of the time setting in a command, whether it'd be 10 seconds, no specification at all or 1000 seconds, it turns off after about 4.5 seconds.
I ran the text demo, which is supposed to turn off after it's run through, still turns off after those ~4 seconds.
I specified for it to run for 10 seconds, still turns off after 4.

I have no clue how to fix his, could someone please help me? I've been troubleshooting this for about an hour now, and at this point I have no idea what to do anymore.

Thanks in advance,

Fredi
