Release Turn Off screensaver
#1
This weekend I released a new screensaver named "Turn Off".

It is available from the default Kodi repository for Krypton and higher.

Its purpose is to turn of the display (TV, projector, monitor) by cutting the HDMI signal or using CEC or DPMS functionality.
In that regard it could work with any brand of display or hardware.

I wrote it because in my case using Raspberry Pi's, the RPi device stays on all the time, but the display never turns off.
Whether that display is a monitor (CEC won't work) or a projector (bad CEC implementation, turns on randomly just when you have left on vacation !!).

So in a way, this is a true "screen saver".

Additionally, it can also turn off audio (think: A/V receiver), log out the current user (think: parental control) or sleep/hibernate/power down your system.

The implementation already works well for specific use-cases I tested, but no doubt you have different hardware and unique instructions to make your display turn off.
I would like to hear from you so we can add this method to the existing screensaver add-on.

Feedback appreciated.
