    Hi,

    I installed caffeine to get over this with gnome-screensaver added as a process name.
    I'm on 12.04 - You could do a search to find out a little more about it.

    Here's a link for the ppa -

    Cheers -

    Edit : I have had a look and have seen that kworker is also added as a process name - For what reason I'm not sure but it works for me.
