That's how I started.  I thought that was enough to disable the 
screensaver and thought nothing of it since.  Now that the environment 
has stabilized, I'm not fiddling with the remote constantly, so user 
input is idle for long periods of time and I'm seeing this screensaver 
pop up.

I'm going to test things today to replicate it and see what is actually 
causing the screensaver to kick off.
