In particular, OS X dims my backlight when running off battery power and using Jomic. It'd be great if it -- like other applications (VLC) -- could suppress this behavior instead of the user having to manually change the setting prior to using Jomic.

    I've looked into this.

    AFAIK hacks to disable screen blankers and dimmers periodically simulate a key being pressed. In Java, there doesn't seem to be any low level way to press a key (which would be noted by Mac OS's screen blanker timeout thread), it's all about sending keyboard events which only exist within the Java application. Sorry.

    I'll gladly implement it if someone can tell me how.
