Power Dimmer Screensaver


Package test results are passing.

This package was approved by moderator gep13 on 3/26/2019.

Power Dimmer is a Windows screen saver application that, once activated, will gradually dim your screen, fading it from full brightness to a final brightness level that you set. While the screen is dimmed, you can still see all of your windows, as well as any on-screen activity. Move the mouse or press a key and your screen will be restored to full brightness. To install this screen saver, download and unzip the file to your Windows folder and then select WhitSoft Power Dimmer from the list of screen savers in your Display Options control panel.

To install Power Dimmer Screensaver, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install powerdimmer

To upgrade Power Dimmer Screensaver, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade powerdimmer

    Unless clearly stated otherwise, all WhitSoft programs are freeware, and 
    as such are freely distributable. The one condition is that the program 
    file itself must not be modified from its original form; however, it may 
    be packaged or bundled with other software. If you are distributing a 
    WhitSoft program, I'd appreciate a short email and a copy of the 
    distributed package if possible.
