(SOLVED) flash movies and screensaver

Hi.
When I'm watching flash movies my screensaver is turining on after 1 hour it's maximum that I can set in gnome control center... how to change that time to 2 hours or turn off at all ? is it possible ? It's making me crazy because in half movie watching have to move mouse to see my movie again...

any ideas ?

Can't you turn it off completely?
Not sure if Gnome overrides system settings, but you can try https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/DPMS#Turn_off_DPMS

Re: (SOLVED) flash movies and screensaver

If you want the screensaver to detect when flash is playing and disable itself just for the movie (but keep it active otherwise), then this may be helpful for you: http://www.webupd8.org/2012/05/2-ways-t … sable.html

I've tried the LightsOn script mentioned in the article and had mixed results. I haven't tried the other program they mentioned (Caffeine), but I suppose you could use that and just set it to block the screensaver whenever flash-plugin-container is detected.

That script is mentioned a couple times on the forums too, e.g. https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=130447
