Bug Description

Ubuntu 12.10
The system suspends while watching a video on XBMC. I've got the power settings set up to suspend after one hour of inactivity, but how playing a video can be considered inactive?

GNOME has a dbus interface to inhibit suspend, totem for example set it so such issues don't happen, xbmc should do the same
