Looking for a screensaver with powersave on AGA

I've been looking for a screensaver that would do the following:

1) Make the screen black and turn off the pointer, no need for fireworks,
2) Do the above in a non-interlaced screenmode to turn off flickerfixer,
3) Maybe turn off various DMA? Sounds like a good idea anyway,
4) Turn off the monitor.

Is it even possible to turn the monitor without a graphics card, just AGA? The help for that option in MCP suggests so, but then again the option doesn't do anything at all for me. A search on Aminet for "DPMS" returns only matches speaking of CyberGfx. I guess it's also possible that my scandoubler/flickerfixer will prevent the monitor from going off.

Hi,

1 & 2 sound ok, not so sure why you'd want to do # 3 and # 4 is going to be hard to find.

MCP do the trick for you (blanks mouse and screen). But it not turn the monitor off. I need to remember the option who do it.

Hmm... Where is my brain when I need it?
