View Full Version : [xubuntu] disable screensaver when watching fullscreen video?

May 24th, 2009, 10:57 PM
Since upgrading to Jaunty the screen switches into power save mode every ten minutes when not moving the mouse, which means it comes on when watching a film for example. How can I get the screensaver to not enable itself when using fullscreen apps or specific applications such as Xine?

Preferences > Power management


Preferences > Screen saver

Not sure which one you were referring to Power or your Screensaver coming up

good luck

Neither of those features an option to not enable screen/power saving when using fullscreen apps, unfortunately.

Has anyone else noticed this with xine or is it a problem with the screensaver settings?

I've had this issue and neither of the settings seem to work. I'm using Mythbuntu.
