npviewer, vlc and other media players and web video doesn't stop power management settings or screensaver

Bug Description

When I'm watching fullscreen video in Kubuntu 11.04 after 5 mins or more the screen goes black but I still have sounds so I have to move the mouse or keyboard to get another 5 mins. This happens in firefox, vlc and most fullscreen playback apps. Not major but very annoying. I realise I can change the Power Management to Performance or Presentation or whatever but it would be much nicer if KDE or Kubuntu to prevent black screens when watching full screen video. Thanks for any help.

affects: ubuntu → gnome-power-manager (Ubuntu)
