As I noted in my earlier post, I was able to do a workaround the lacking functionality of the current version of Caffeine.

If you don't mind using a keyboard shortcut to turn the screen off and on, this works really well, no hacking and offers quite a bit of functionality.

Perhaps if there is someone here that can write a simple applet using my post as the basis, maybe we have something?

Check it out..I just added one additional step in case one forgets to set the screen back...
