I've recently installed Ubuntu 12.10, I've disabled all the power saving features and screen savers, yet after 15 minutes or so of inactivity, my screen starts to go black and I have to move my mouse to stop it, I'd like to finish my film in one go :( any ideas as to why this is happening?

Hi Insert.

Up in the far upper right corner click on the icon that looks like a ship's wheel. Click on "Systems Settings", click on "Brightness and Lock", look for "Turn screen off when inactive for:" and change it to never or for how long you want it for.
