EGS programming info

Where can I get useful programming info for EGS and for the Spectrum?  I got
a small bit of info with the manual, but it was essentially useless.

I think it is one of the following ftp addresses.
Someone who can confirm this?

etsu.orion.edu
or
orion.etsu.edu

 
 
 

1. DPMS programs for the Amiga/EGS?

I have a Sony CPD-1730 monitor, and use it with an EGS Spectrum card.  Are
there any DPMS "Screen blankers" out there?  (DPMS stands for Display Power
Management Signaling and basically is a method whereby the monitor shuts it's
self down partially to conserve power)

From what I understand, if the verticle/horizontal sync goes away, the monitor
goes into a sort of "Standby" power-saving mode, reducing it's power
consumption by (in my case, about 20%).

It'd be nice if there was a tool out there which would let you set the normal
EGS screenblanker to kick in after x number of minutes, and for it to kill
sync after x more number of minutes.  This way if you left your computer alone
for a bit, you'd get your normal blanker, and, if you totally forgot about it
and went away for say 15 minutes, the monitor would put it's self into the
power-saving 'standby' mode.

I know there's programs out there for PCs for monitors that support it, but
I've never heard of one for the Amiga.  Any ideas?
