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.
