Description Reuben Thomas 2015-01-04 21:45:53 UTC
This would be useful for programs that want to manage the screensaver, to minimise polling. For example, Caffeine inhibits the screensaver if a window is full-screen. It currently checks every 30 seconds (a reasonable minimum), but if the screensaver timeout were known, it could check that often minus a few seconds and save CPU time and power.
