[vlc-devel] [PATCH] Add dpms module to switch it off while playing
remi at remlab.net

The DPMS extension of X11 is meant for the desktop power management component
to use, not for normal applications. Changing DPMS settings via xset, Xlib or
XCB would clobber the desktop settings, which is obviously *not* acceptable.
Normally, the desktop should automatically disarm and rearm DPMS when the
screensaver is inhibited and uninhibited respectively. If it does not, then it
is a the bug in the desktop environment. There are no ways to fix this problem
in VLC for lack of a proper API.
