How about just selecting "Disable powermanagement" or "Energieverwaltung 
deaktivieren" available when clicking on laptop battery icon in systray? 
(Dunno how that would look on a desktop system).

Or extra player: I think some players inhibit the screen blanker and screen 
energy saving.

An extra idea, search via qdbus, maybe under powerdevil or powermanagement or 
some such for a method to do what you want to achieve.
