Well monitors do have the buring screen problem anymore, and they dont save any power,. they solved that quite some time ago. To set auto monitor power save add [ Option "dpms"] in the [Section "Monitor"] of /etc/X11/XF86Config. To set the turn off times add
# Set the basic blanking screen saver timeout.
Option "blank time" "10" # 10 minutes
# Set the DPMS timeouts. These are set here because they are global
# rather than screen-specific. These settings alone don't enable DPMS.
# It is enabled per-screen (or per-monitor), and even then only when
# the driver supports it.
Option "standby time" "20"
Option "suspend time" "30"
Option "off time" "60"
in the [Section "ServerFlags"]
I would probably edit the the menu files manually then. juct cut and paste from kde's file.
Why i like IceWM?
my main goal is light weight. I dont want to upgrade my system ever year because micro$oft decides to make there software biger and less effeicent.
ice is extreally light, less than a meg. yet has great functionality. Most WMs i just found to be anoining. I am very picky. I found the taskbar style to be the the most effiecent for me. I also like geoshells taskbar but its for windows, and XP patented the "grouping" function, so that sucks for us. IceWM's configuration is quite diverse, allowing configuration of almost everthing, however it is simple enough to not take to long to find what you like and set it. I liked blackbox's taskbar also. It is similar to geoshell, however it only shows the top most program in the bar, which i could not understand. so that is my thoughts.
and just in case you care here are a list of my perfered programs
text: vim and gvim
audio, video: mplayer
file managment: xterm or xfe or rox filer
the rest are ether obvious or i dont really like what i use, but its the best ive found
