I have installed the ScreenSavers Hack successfully on my PW. I want to use it a bit differently than intended: I want my PW to always show the current weather forecast when in standby.

I have added a small script to crontab which is called every hour. The script uses curl to download the weather forecast as png from my server. It stores it directly in /mnt/us/linkss/screensavers/bg_medium_ss00.png.

To update the picture while the device is in standby I rewrite the screen with eips.

But currently I don't know how to find out that I'm in standby or not. So the screen is overwritten even when I'm reading. Duh

Can anybody tell me how to find out if the screensaver is active or not?

Thanks a lot.
