Foiled by energy settings
Authored by: adashiel on Feb 08, '03 11:06:11AM

I don't use Screen Effects, but I do use Energy Saver on some of my machines to sleep the screen (and just the screen) after a set period. If you shell in and take a screen shot while the display is asleep, you'll get a blank pdf. Fortunately, I only use the command line to take pictures of the screen of my router, a B&W G3 with its own display permanently turned off and energy settings set never to sleep.

I suppose it might be possible to wake up the display from the command line. Probably something worthwhile to investigate anyway. ;)
