Kopete logout

I used to forgot to log off from Kopete when going home after work. So I wrote this script to automatically disconnect Kopete, if hour is eveningish and screensaver is running. It uses DCOP to check for screensaver and to talk to Kopete.
Put this script to crontab and configure username and evening hours.

# This script will wait until screen is blanked and then log off from Kopete
