I want to be able to use a screen saver even when on battery power but even when i run it with gnome-screensaver-command -a it doesn't work. Does anyone have any ideas?

I'm not using gnome-screensaver, maybe you'd like to try Xscreensaver, it's in the repos. The reason I switched was because sometimes the gnome-screensaver would make my laptop crash. As for Xscreensaver, so far, so good.
