You can disable the screensaver for the duration of a program using this. Supply the normal command line for the app as the arguments to this. To test it, set your screensaver timeout to 1 minute and run a command like:
noss perl -le"sleep(1), print for 1 .. 61"
#! perl -slw
q[ BOOL SystemParametersInfo(
UINT uiAction, UINT uiParam, PVOID pvParam, UINT fWinIni
) or die $^E;
SystemParametersInfo( 0x0011, 0, 0, 0 ) or die $^E; ## SS off
SystemParametersInfo( 0x0011, 1, 0, 0 ) or die $^E; ## SS on
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
