Roadmap to 1.5
««« Features for next version will be added here »»»
sync the blanking or DPMS values between xfpm and X11
if the user sets the blank time e.g. in another application or a terminal (“xset s 10”), xfpm's UI wouldn't reflect this change of settings at all, but the screen would still blank after 10 seconds. however, this is more the exception than the rule, checking this once at dialog startup should be fine.
“Handle display power management” option also disables DPMS.
option a) We change the wording of the label to something like “Enable display power management”
option b) We make it do what it says, i.e. just leave the DPMS values alone if 0
further improve coexistance with xscreensaver (DPMS on AC/battery) if possible
consider doing a fade-to-black, if X11's screensaver extension is used (instead of gnome-screensaver or xscreensaver)
better handle machines that have more than one battery (especially warnings and remaining time, tooltip info about battery)
some machines (most common with IBM/Lenovo thinkpads) can set the maximum level batteries will be charged to (e.g. 80%); xfpm should properly handle this with regard to notifications etc. see bug #8561
