Description Matthew Mosesohn 2012-08-06 10:16:36 EDT
Description of problem:
Keyboard input into a guest VM doesn't notify gnome-screensaver to not activate.  It can be quite frustrating for users

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Win7 x86_64 guest via local KVM (with all RHEV-D guest tools installed)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot up VM
2. Launch a text editor application in the VM
3. Type constantly for several minutes
Actual results:
gnome-screensaver activates 

Expected results:
The input to the VM should satisfy gnome-screensaver, or somehow the guest should sync screensavers with the client.
