Auto turn off


Is there a way I can turn off my mandriva box automatically if no keystrokes are made for 20 minutes or so?

I think there's a way to set screensaver options to run an external program, at least under KDE. You could write a simple shutdown script, and set your screensaver for a 20 minute delay.
