I doubt that this is the case, but in the xorg.conf file where BlankTime
option is set for less than the default 10 min. Even so, I don't find my
monitor blanking in 10 minutes during a movie.
Maybe in Control Appearance and Themes/Screensaver, it is set for a
blank screensaver and the time is short? You could try making it longer.
I use gxine for movies. I haven't tried other things to know how well
they handle screensavers. It does sound like it isn't really the
screensaver that is doing this, but I don't know what it would be.
