Chapter 3. API overview

Idle inhibition is achieved by the application calling an Inhibit method on a well-known D-Bus name.

Inhibition will stop when the UnInhibit method is called, or the application disconnects from the D-Bus session bus (which usually happens upon exit).

Implementations of this well-known bus name must have an object /org/freedesktop/ScreenSaver which implements the org.freedesktop.ScreenSaver interface.
