 this timeout.

 My concern is not with suspend/resume, because that is not currently
 working in vanilla os38.

 What I would like the system to do is a multi-stage quiesce - first dim
 the screen (to warn the user that the system is idle);  then turn off
 (blank) the screen (but without for instance powering off USB) to save
 power;  only after another interval suspend for real.  In my scenario, the
 screen does get blanked -- and currently the screen goes a "dirty" gray,
 whereas it ought to perform blanking properly.
