If you have a beautiful new iMac, you know how nice and bright the screen is. Thing is...sometimes a bright screen isn't what you're going for. Enter this widget. It allows you to IMMEDIATELY sleep just your display so that you can continue running your background jobs. It doesn't permanently affect your energy settings, so when you start working again, your monitor will not sleep immediately. It's a simple widget, but it solves an annoying problem.
Although I haven't upgraded yet, I'm told that this widget no longer works in Leopard. Sorry for any inconvenience there. If I get around to upgrading, I'll be sure to work on a new Leopard-compatible version.
- Ability to define time until display sleeps
- New widget icon
