This plug-in (for Locale and Tasker) detects whether the screen is on or off. For instance, you can turn on Airplane Mode when the display is off to save power.
Note: If you don't have Locale or Tasker installed, this plug-in will do you no good. If you don't know what Locale or Tasker are, you don't need this plug-in. I would highly recommend Locale, though, as it helps you automate your device settings based on where you are, which network you are connected to, or many other conditions, in a very user-friendly manner.
Tasker Users: Once installed, you can find the Screen Power Detection Plug-In by going to Profiles, and adding a "State" condition. Within the pop-up that appears, you will see a button labeled "Plugin." Tap that, and you will see "Screen Power Detection."
