I'm sure that would work.

But this bug cemented itself on my most-hated list after several 
evenings of watching Internet-streamed video with a Lubuntu laptop 
connected to a TV by a short cable.  In this case I'd have to remember 
AND get up to go do it, and I found that during the course of a show I'd 
fail at that several times and then have to get up and log back in -- 
all while the video kept rolling.
