~mil/sxmo-tickets#177: 
Suspend Conky during screenlock

Conky updating while the screen is off causes considerably worse battery runtime as it forces the screen to get re-drawn, causing X to consume power, this can be mitigated by sending STOP to the conky process when the screen locks and CONT when it unlocks.

I've set pre/post hooks to run pkill -STOP conky and pkill -CONT conky respectively and got 30-45min extra runtime while listening to music
