Sleep: reduce FPS when no activity is detected.
Temporary solution to sleep any PyMT application if nobody touch the screen.
This could have a bad impact when reading video or audio. It's not suitable for
everyone, it's just a temporary solution.
Sleep module check every frame if they are any touches activities. When no
activity is made from an amount of time, sleep module will introduce a sleep()
call after each frame renderer. More the sleep will be high, more the FPS will
decrease, more your CPU will be not used.
Sleep module need 2 lists: ramp and sleep. For example ::
sleep = ramp=5:10:20:30:60:180,sleep=.03:.1:.2:.5:1.:5.
For a ramp of 5s, 10s, 20s, 30s, 50s, 180s, the sleep time will be .03s, .1s,
.2s, .5s, 1., 5.
With this default ramp/sleep, after 5s of inactivity, FPS will be 1/0.03 =
33 FPS. After 10s, FPS will be 1/.1 = 10 FPS...
During the sleep phase, touch cannot wake up the module. But the module will be
