tclkeymon-0.50

This is a major release update. Changes:

1. If using the experimental Toshiba ACPI driver from here:

http://memebeam.org/toys/ExperimentalToshibaAcpiDriver

You can use the tbacklight utility to allow powering off
the display LCD. The tbacklight utility can be as part of the
toshutils package available for many distributions, or from:

http://www.buzzard.org.uk/toshiba/

To specify that you want to use the tbacklight utility, add the
following to the configuration file (for example):

set tbacklight "/usr/local/bin/tbacklight"

2. You can disable the polling loop entirely by specifying a polling
interval of zero in the configuration file:

set pollInterval 0

When this is done, only screensaver related activities are enabled.

3. Allow disabling the setting of DMA on the CD/DVD (Fn-d) with:

set cd_dvd "/dev/null"

4. The Toshiba "world" button next to the power button now runs
Firefix instead of Mozilla

5. The fan is now automatically controlled (Fn-F2 is effectively disabled).
The temperature thresholds can be set with:

set tempHigh 50
set tempLow 45
set tempOff 40

The tempOff value is only used when the screensaver kicks in, or Fn-b
is used to force an immediate screen blanking.

6. When the screensavers activates (or Fn-b is used), the hard drive will
be automatically idled. If on the AC adapter, the idle time is 2 minutes.
If running on batteries, the idle time is 5 seconds.

7. If the screen saver is not running when the Fn-b key combination is used
for an immediate screen blanking, the xscreensaver and dpms will be
restarted. This is handy if you've disabled the screen saver manually
to watch a movie, for example.
