Bug Description

When watching google video, youtube or any other flash video the screen slowly turn black after 5min, it happens just when the mouse was not moved or a key pressed. If is on the full screen, it back to embed mode and the screen begin to become black, so move the mouse is needed to screen back to the normal.

It doesn't happen when i'm watching a DVD on totem for example.

sorry, my english is poor.

Seems like Screensaver is starting. Flash doesn't disable screensaver, totem does.
