- 
-''​SAGASleep''​ will be embedded in the [[http://​www.apollo-accelerators.com/​files/​|SAGA Drivers packages]] starting from **0.10b** release or download it from [[http://​aminet.net/​package/​driver/​video/​SAGASleep|Aminet]] as soon as it is available.

-===== Usage with WHDLoad ===== 
- 
-Typically, this tool will be used with [[http://​whdload.de|WHDLoad]]. 
- 
-Open ''​S:​WHDLoad.prefs''​ in a Text Editor and make sure these lines are not commented : 
- 
-  ExecuteStartup=Execute S:​WHDLoad-Startup ​ ; command to execute on WHDLoad startup 
-  ExecuteCleanup=Execute S:​WHDLoad-Cleanup ​ ; command to execute on WHDLoad exit 
- 
-Then, modify both files ''​S:​WHDLoad.Startup''​ and ''​S:​WHDLoad.Cleanup''​ 
- 
-  ; 
-  ; example script to be used with WHDLoad option ExecuteCleanup 
-  ; restart all software which has been stopped previously with ExecuteStartup 
-  ; 
-  ​ 
-  ; Power ON/OFF the SAGA Video Output

-===== Usage with FKey ===== 
- 
-Another use can be to associate a Keyboard shortcut for suspend / restore the SAGA Video Output. 
- 
-  * Open ''​SYS:​Tools/​Commodities/​FKey''​ 
-  * Click ''​New Key''​ button 
-  * Shortcut : ''​Control Escape''​ or any valid value  
-  * Command : ''​Run Program''​

- 
-===== Usage with MiniBench ===== 
- 
-Another usage is to use it with the [[minibench|MiniBench]] benchmarking tool. 
- 
-The goal is to run MiniBench with the SAGA Video Output disabled to obtain more consistent scores. 
- 
-Create a script ''​MiniBench.run'',​ and add these lines : 
- 
-  ;  
-  ; Run MiniBench with SAGA Video Output disabled. 
-  ;  
-  ​ 
-  C:SAGASleep >NIL: 
-  C:MiniBench 
-  C:SAGASleep >NIL: 
- 
-Open CLI and type : 
- 
-  >Execute MiniBench.run 
- 
----- 
- 
-===== Various usage ===== 
- 
-Sometimes, after booting the Workbench in a **24bits RTG** screenmode, the colors are wrong for some reason. It is possible to use SAGASleep to '​repair'​ the colors. Associate the following script to a KB event or so for handy access. 
- 
-Create a script ''​SAGAFix24.run'',​ and add these lines : 
- 
-  ;  
-  ; Fix 24bits SAGA Video Mode 
-  ;  
-  ​ 
-  C:SAGASleep >NIL: 
-  C:Wait 1 
-  C:SAGASleep >NIL: 
- 
-Open CLI and type : 
- 
-  >Execute SAGAFix24.run 
- 
----- 
- 
-===== Known BUG ===== 
- 
-It seems the AmigaOS3.x ''​DimensionInfo''​->''​MaxDepth''​ property 
-returns "​**24**"​ when the frontmost screenmode depth is "​**32bits**"​. 
- 
-This issue prevents ''​SAGASleep''​ to restore properly from a 32bits screenmode.
