Default Multi Display Power Management


I'm considering writing a small program, to enable power management for individual displays in a multi-display environment. I'd enjoy and appreciate input on how to go about it. Simply and elegantly.

Normally, power management is controlled by system activity. The goal of the program would be to link system activity to a specific display, in Windows 7.

Example
----------
1 PC, 3 displays: A, B and C.
In a normal situation, as long as there is activity, all displays are kept awake. Even if all activity is exclusively on display A. All displays are awake or asleep at the same time.

In the new situation, if activity is limited to display A, then displays B and C will go to sleep, after a specified time. Only the displays that are in use, are awake.
----------

The first problem seems to be how to determine where input is sent, display A, B or C.

Seems to me that another key question here is whether the displays are operating as separate displays or as a unified extended desktop.
