    so i found pmset for managing power management from the commandline, and it's great. my question is, is there a similar command for controlling the screensaver? all i really want to do is turn it off (or on) remotely.

    any help is greatly appreciated!

    how to disable screen saver?

    Is there a command to disable the screen saver? I have a piece of software called Caffeine but my menu bar is too short for me to see the program. Also, I would prefer a command so that I can ssh from another machine and run it.
