Bug Description

In Ubuntu Lucid, the screensaver automatically activates after 5 minutes of "inactivity." Unfortunately, the system often thinks it's inactive when in fact I am busy using it -- I'm just not using my keyboard or mouse. In particular, tonight I was watching a 30-minute video on Hulu.com, and every five minutes I had to rush over to my computer and move the mouse before the screen went black and the computer locked itself.
