Thanks for the feedback.

I should check if music is playing... I'll have to figure that one out.

I'm not too concerned about mythbrowser, if the screensaver activates and
you ignore it, your no longer looking at the page anyway.

Because I am just suspending, the system wakes up right where you were in
the video if you had it paused... no need to check it or set a bookmark.
