    Is it possible under version 1.2.5, or will it be under a later version, to prevent the system being considered idle when the phone is close enough? I'm having to turn off features I would really rather keep on, so that they come into play when I pause blueproximity, simply to stop my screen going off.

    The proximity command (under Locking tab) should be doing this for you, as I understand.

    My guess is that you need to change the proximity command. The default command "gnome-screensaver-command -p" is deprecated and gnome recommends using the new "inhibit" command:

    gnome-screensaver-command -i
    

    That should cause the screensaver to remain "inhibited" while you're in proximity.
