Description
-----------
  DPMSManager is a small DPMS energy saving tool for computers
  equipped with a CyberGraphics/Picasso96-supporting Gfx-Board.

  DPMSManager supports the three DPMS energy-saving methods of modern
  monitors (STANDBY, SUSPEND, POWEROFF).
  You can specify the delay time for each DPMS-stage.

  The main idea of DPMSManager is to have DPMS-functions in conjunction
  with other screenblankers (if so, then you have to set the dpms-times
  longer then the blanker times!!) or just as standalone-program which
  provides the energy saving methods.

  This program is a redesign of my CGXBlanker (util/blank/CGXBlanker.lha)
  and the idea for it had Paul "ExiE" Strejcek.

  Thanks, Paul for this good idea!


ToolTypes
---------
  The following tooltypes/shell parameters are supported:

  MODEID      : (optional and recommended) -> ModeID of the CGX-screenmode
                used to open for the DPMS-mode. If not specified, DPMSManager
                uses the screenmode of your WB (which then has to be run
                under CGX/P96 to allow the DPMS-functions!).
                The ModeID has to be a decimal number (you can get it with
                getModeID).

  POWEROFFKEY : <SHIFT F4> -> shortcut for immediate DPMS-PowerOff

  QUITKEY     : <SHIFT F5> -> shortcut for quitting DPMSManager

  STANBYTIME  : <seconds> to wait before stage 1 of DPMS (Standby)

  SUSPEND     : <seconds> to wait after stage 1 before activating
                stage 2 (Suspend)

  POWEROFFTIME: <seconds> to wait after stage 2 before activating
                stage 3 (PowerOff)

  NOMOUSE     : Prevents DPMSManager from powering the Monitor on again
                when the mouse is moved.

  If you want to use hotkeys with spaces in it, please use "'s.
  For example you want Alt Shift F10 as poweroff-key, then you have
  to write
  dpmsmanager poweroffkey="Alt Shift F10"

  o GfxBoard running with CyberGraphX or Picasso96 and a
    Workbench/DefaultPublicScreen running in >=256 Colors
    (tested with CGXV3, 1152x900x16, OpusMagellanII)

History
-------
  V1.00:  (01.05.1999)
          ** first public release **

  V1.01:  (03.05.1999)
          Now you can also deactivate each DPMS-stage by putting
          brackets around the time-statement (e.g. "(POWEROFFTIME=240)")
          Also, you can deactive the hotkey POWEROFFKEY in the same
          way. Some GFX-Cards could have problems with the POWEROFF-
          stage (PicassoII(+)?).
          Thanks to Helmut Wippermueller for this suggestion!

  V1.10:  (01.08.2000)
          Added shell-support (same syntax as the WB ToolTypes).
          Thanks to Xavier Messersmith for this idea!

  V1.11:  (20.02.2000)
          Added the NOMOUSE Tooltype to prevent PowerOn when moving
          the mouse.
          Thanks to Efim Shuvikov for this idea!

  V1.20:  (03.03.2000)
          ** second public release **
          DPMSManager now blanks immediately again if another screen or
          window was brought to front by another application.
          Thanks to Ingo Musquinier for reporting this problem!

  V1.21:  (07.08.2000)
          Removed a silly Enforcer-Hit which happened at program launch.
          Reported by Michal Stochmialek. Thanks Michal!

  V1.22:  (12.09.2001)
          DPMSManager now has a named screen+window to allow users
          to disallow patches like VisualPrefs patching DPMSManager.
          Thanks to Matt reporting this!

  V1.23:  (13.09.2001)
          - DPMSManager now has a public screen named "DPMSManager" to
            hopefully fix finally the reason problems which should have
            been fixed with V1.22... :)
          - Arg. Forgot also to switch off a small develop helper in V1.22...
