Default Pause screensaver etc.

Not a Windows setting, but....in VLC Player, click the Tools menu
Preferences
Under "Show Settings" at the bottom left, switch from "Simple" to "All"
Now on the left, select "Video"
On the right, put a check in the box for "Disable Screensaver"
Click the Save button.

Thanks for the quick reply! I am using VLC player mostly but I also
use other programs from time to time, I'm really looking for a windows
solution rather than a specific program solution.

What application are you playing them with?
WMP 11 has an option "Allow screen saver during playback"
Uncheck that in WMP-Tools-Options-Player tab if using WMP

I am sure there must be an easy way to temporarily disable the
screensaver and stop the computer going into hibernation or sleep
modes!
I want to make it possible to watch a video file without having to
keep
manually deactivating these functions. Can anyone help?
