Instead of blank monitor, display message on screen

save a picture, should be true .bmp file (not just .ext)
you can't change the name, only background.bmp allowed.
This allow the viewer to blank the screen
Capture alphaBlending is needed for semi transparent windows
( xp, vista...) but use more cpu.
Instead of using the powermanager to blank the monitor we put
a layered window on top and capture the windows below. Using
this option you also can define a custom blank by placing a file
"background.bmp" in the ultravnc folder.

if you use mirror driver, no effect, background.bmp is simply ignored.
hope would be fixed and should be allowed back to
