I listen to lots of music while doing non-computer related stuff and my laptop falls asleep after 30 mins, as per my power settings, so I have to go back to the laptop to wiggle the mouse every now and then.
I've noticed that when Totem plays a video, it overrides the power settings - screen remains on all the time and I don't have to do anything.
Is this a specific feature of Totem, or is there any way I can do the same with my sound applications? What about, say, a Flash or HTML5 video player inside a browser?
I'm using a distro based on Ubuntu 10.10, players used are Clementine and Spotify for Linux. Totem came as default on my distro which is why I suspect it's some sort of system preset involved.
