Sure. This needs to be in the help file, those with better persuasion of
English than me welcome to submit patches :-)

active = mouse moved within last idle time
powersave = session inactive for a few seconds
idle = session inactive for time set in gnome-screensaver

so we get:

{idle}
active -> powersave -> idle

{mouse moved}
idle -> active

Inhibit() also stops the machine going to idle, and a g-s inhibit stops
the machine going to powersave.

Does that make things clearer?
