AntiBlackout for GEOS is easy to explain. You see, there is a program available on the internet called BLACKOUT. What this program does is patch your GEOS kernal so that your screen will turn black after a period of idle time. This is called a screen saver (and is necessary on most Commodore monitors). However, this kernal patch, if permanently installed via geoMakeBoot, is not removable. This is bad because geoBASIC will not run properly with this kernal patch installed. Thus you have AntiBlackOut. It removes BLACKOUT from the kernal and restores it to a pristine state. Simple.

That's all there is to the interface. It either gives this message if BLACKOUT is not installed, or another message saying that BLACKOUT was removed from memory.
