I hate to keep bumping my own thread, but I'm at a loss here.  Doesn't
anyone have their machines set to suspend automatically when idle?  I have
been looking everywhere and I can't figure out any way to prevent it from
sleeping while I'm watching video.  I suspect that I'm simply using the
wrong seach terms, but I have tried everything I can think of.
