gammazoid [Power manager] feature request

   * Moreover, it would be nice if there was an option that prevents the machine from going to sleep when there is some computational load. This way, one could just leave the machine crunching through a large amount of data and have it go to sleep after it has finished.   * Moreover, it would be nice if there was an option that prevents the machine from going to sleep when there is some computational load.

   * An easy-to-implement feature request: Please add an advanced configuration option for telling the power manager which backlight interface to use (e.g. "​acpi_video0"​ or "​intel_backlight"​). Backlight implementation is a complete mess in Linux, so sometimes the unwanted interface cannot be removed from /​sys/​class/​backlight/,​ or the user has a non-supported laptop-specific interface name, and in these cases it can be necessary to change the hardcoded priority order of xfpm-backlight-helper.c   * An easy-to-implement feature request: Please add an advanced configuration option for telling the power manager which backlight interface to use (e.g. "​acpi_video0"​ or "​intel_backlight"​).

 +  * **Enhance the PowerManager indicator by changing its icon color when sleep is inhibited**;​ e.g., bright blue when inhibited by setting "​Presentation Mode" or by program action and a subtle color (like grey or its current white) when not inhibited. ​ That way, when leaving the computer, a quick, effortless visual check lets the user know if the computer/​monitors will remain on indefinitely or not. I implemented that feature myself in python and find it avoids much frustration,​ but a built-in feature would be nice for everyone and nicer for me.
