Comment 1 Richard Hughes 2009-08-20 07:59:09 EDT
mplayer needs to inhibit the session -- otherwise gnome-power-manager has no idea what's going on.
Comment 2 Kieran Clancy 2009-10-26 08:31:05 EDT
mplayer calls XScreenSaverSuspend when it starts playing, which inhibits a standard xscreensaver-compatible screensaver from running, but gnome-screensaver uses it's own system for other technical reasons.

I think it would be good if it could support applications that use XScreenSaverSuspend though, see comment 2 on <https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=416429>.
