COMMANDS
       suspend WindowID
              Suspends the screensaver and monitor power management.  WindowID must be the X Window ID of an existing
              window of the calling application. The window must remain in existance for the duration of the

              WindowID can be represented as either a decimal number or as a hexadecimal number consisting of the
              prefix 0x followed by one or more hexadecimal digits.

              The screensaver can be suspended in relation to multiple windows at the same time. In that case
              screensaver operation is only restored once the screensaver has been resumed in relation to each of the
              windows

       resume WindowID

              Window ID that was passed to a previous call of xdg-screensaver suspend

       activate

              existing system policies.
