[Tutor] Console Application - Key Events

Hi tutors,

I would like to know if there is any "easy" way to handle events (such as
mouse movements, keyboard keys pressed, etc) in console based python

More specifically, I am working on a screensaver for terminals (
http://termsaver.info), so I would like to simulate the same behaviour of a
standard screensaver for the X windows, by:

   - running on background
   - starting some functionality (display a text, etc) if there is no event
   (mouse or keyboard) for more than N minutes
   - stopping the above if there is any movement detected

Any thoughts on this would be highly appreciated.
