I was interested in this also (suspending the screen after a period of time, 
etc.) and found the quoted email in a search of the archives.  I did the 
apt-get install, but am having difficulty finding documentation on how to 
configure it.  I've searched in Google, newbie websites, reference manuals, 
but am getting nowhere.  

I have a suspicion that the answer is so obvious that there is no need to 
document it. (Like:  check the man page!)  But so far I'm drawing a blank.
