phoenix_title wx.PowerResource

Helper functions for acquiring and releasing the given power resource.

If an application performs a long running task without user interaction it is often necessary to prevent the system from automatically suspending or powering off the screen and Acquire method can be used to do this.

Notice that currently this functionality is only implemented for MSW and OS X.

If possible, use wx.PowerResourceBlocker class to ensure that Release is called instead of calling it manually.

Base

New in version 4.1/wxWidgets-3.1.0.

Helper functions for acquiring and releasing the given power resource.


Methods

static Acquire(kind, reason="")

Acquire a power resource for the application.

If successful, the system will not automatically power of the screen or suspend until Release is called.

Parameters
  • kind (PowerResourceKind) – Power resource required, either POWER_RESOURCE_SCREEN or POWER_RESOURCE_SYSTEM.

  • reason (string) – Optional reason may be specified which might be used on some platforms to inform the user what is preventing power saving. It should usually describe the operation requiring the resource and specifying it is strongly recommended.
