This seem to not work correctly. When set to something more than
“never”, it works, but if reset to “never”, it still uses the previous
setting (or 10s, I'm not that sure).
The DPMS settings seem to not work either, they're never activated here.

What exactly is the “inhibit“ stuff? Do you have some input on that? :)
