NAME
       xdg-screensaver - command line tool for controlling the screensaver

SYNOPSIS
       xdg-screensaver suspend WindowID

       xdg-screensaver resume WindowID

       xdg-screensaver {activate | lock | reset | status}

       xdg-screensaver {--help | --manual | --version}

DESCRIPTION
       xdg-screensaver provides commands to control the screensaver.

       xdg-screensaver is for use inside a desktop session only. It is not recommended to use
       xdg-screensaver as root.

COMMANDS
       suspend WindowID
	   Suspends the screensaver and monitor power management.  WindowID must be the X Window
	   ID of an existing window of the calling application. The window must remain in
	   existence for the duration of the suspension.

	   WindowID can be represented as either a decimal number or as a hexadecimal number
	   consisting of the prefix 0x followed by one or more hexadecimal digits.

	   The screensaver can be suspended in relation to multiple windows at the same time. In
	   that case screensaver operation is only restored once the screensaver has been resumed
	   in relation to each of the windows

       resume WindowID
	   Resume the screensaver and monitor power management after being suspended.  WindowID
	   must be the same X Window ID that was passed to a previous call of xdg-screensaver
	   suspend

       activate
	   Turns the screensaver on immediately. This may result in the screen getting locked,
	   depending on existing system policies.

       lock
	   Lock the screen immediately.

       reset
	   Turns the screensaver off immediately. If the screen was locked the user may be asked
	   to authenticate first.

       status
	   Prints enabled to stdout if the screensaver is enabled to turn on after a period of
	   inactivity and prints disabled if the screensaver is not enabled.

OPTIONS
       --help
	   Show command synopsis.

       --manual
	   Show this manual page.

       --version
	   Show the xdg-utils version information.

EXIT CODES
       An exit code of 0 indicates success while a non-zero exit code indicates failure. The
       following failure codes can be returned:

       1
	   Error in command line syntax.

       3
	   A required tool could not be found.

       4
	   The action failed.

EXAMPLES
	   xdg-screensaver suspend 0x1c00007

       Causes the screensaver to be disabled till xdg-screensaver resume 0x1c00007 is called.
       0x1c00007 must be the X Window ID of an existing window.
