    Anyone found a way to toggle this setting during playback?

      Just disable your screensaver completely and then activate power management for your monitor set at 5 min. Much better than screensavers.

        Power managemnt wont take effect during playback either.  Anyone aware of a way to allow this?

          Hmm looks like an old preset ability has just became out of date. :-)

          I've a netBook and I wish to play my mp3 music with the screen turned off.
          (Better battery life)

          Any developers out there able to turn this 'disable power /screen saver mode) ability off.

          OK, I could use Winamp or any other software I guess. But I do prefer to use my favourite media player even though it's getting 'long in the tooth' these days. :-)

      why would u want power management to work or screensaver to work when you play video

      if you leave just turn off monitor... if you need pc on

        TVs have a sleep function.  Why shouldn't MPC?
