There may already be some code out there that I don't know about, but what's happening is this:
When Vista is set to a screen saver, or to go to sleep after the time set and I start a movie, the screen saver starts running as soon as the elapsed time in the timer is reached. The only way I have found around this is to turn off the screen saver and the sleep settings, then reset them when the movie is over. I guess I'm looking for some code that would hit the space key via software every 60 seconds or so to cause the screen saver timer to reset.
Thanks in advance,
