Bug ID: 369129
Summary: Powerdevil does not provide a way to inhibit screen
The D-Bus interface in Powerdevil (specifically the inhibitor interface) does
not provide a working way that will let me inhibit screen saving (BUT,
importantly, NOT the screen locker).
What I am looking for is a D-Bus call that will let me inhibit DPMS power save
on all screens of the session, while allowing the screen saver to kick in and
display itself (even if it's the blank screen saver), and the screen locker to
I know I can tell the screen locker to inhibit itself, but that is the opposite
of what I want, and furthermore does not prevent DPMS standby from kicking in.
This is important because I am writing a PulseAudio policy module that will
prevent screen blanking on HDMI devices when HDMI audio out is being used (DPMS
standby kills the audio stream as soon as it kicks in).
