[arch-general] Script to check monitor blank state

Hello everyone,

i would like to write a little script, that suspends my computer
if a few circumstances are met.

One should be, that my screen should be blanked. I already did a google
search on this, but i only found howtos of getting it to work / disable it.

It looks like xset q does not print the actual state.
Maybe there is a hook for screen blanking?

I know this is not a arch specific question, but maybe someone can help me.
