BTW, while you were doing this, did you come across another API function that could turn off
screen power?
Hey thought about another one also: what about one that would activate the screen saver right away?
Dread

Yes all these are possible under SystemParametersInfoA API i think, and some of them using @sendmessage also as Tommy said.
Dr. Dread - Also note that there are *lot* many more interesting things you can do with this API - it has one of the largest number of options in it's parameters Very Happy
Unfortunately it didn't come to my attention earlier Sad .
Thanks for the typo info - Iwill correct that.

You're right CodeScript - that's an extensive API. Couldn't find anything about making screen
blackout or power off Crying or Very sad . Grabbed a few others though. If anyone can use it, then here's code for 3
more buttons for CodeScript's little Screensaver util. Make the buttons yourself Wink

Code:
:BUTTON4BUTTON
REM Set the screen saver's timeout to %X secs
%X = 1800
LOADLIB USER32
%U = @LIB(USER32,SystemParametersInfoA,INT:,15,%X,0,0)
FREELIB USER32
GOTO EVLOOP

:BUTTON5BUTTON
REM Obtain the current screensaver timeout
LOADLIB USER32
%I = @BINARY(DWORD,0)
%U = @LIB(USER32, SystemParametersInfoA,INT:,14,0,@ADDR("%I"),0)
%I = @VAL(%I)
IF @ZERO(%I)
 INFO No info obtained
ELSE
 INFO ScreenSaver timeout is %I secs. (@div(%I,60) mins.)
END
FREELIB USER32
GOTO EVLOOP

:BUTTON6BUTTON
REM Check whether a screensaver is currently running
LOADLIB USER32
%I = @BINARY(DWORD,0)
%U = @LIB(USER32, SystemParametersInfoA,INT:,114,0,@ADDR("%I"),0)
%I = @VAL(%I)
IF @ZERO(%I)
 INFO No Screensaver is running
ELSE
 INFO ScreenSaver is running
END
FREELIB USER32
GOTO EVLOOP

The code has been completely updated to make it more robust and have more options.
