O.k so I thought I could live with it but I just cant. The thing is that when playing a movie with VLC the screen saver starts after 10 min, even if I have choose VLC to disable screen saver when videos are playing.
Easy fix you will say disable screen saver ahead of time if you are planning on watch a movie. The thing is I wouldn’t have to if VLC were working correctly.
I would switch to SMplayer but there is no support for ISO files, and Xine only plays DVDs, Totem has a really bad resolution. So I am just frustrated with Video playing in OpenSuSE.
Please understand I posted this entry that way out of my frustration other than that I love OpenSuSE

Seems to be aproblem elsewhere also http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1334234
sorry no workaround, except what Ben0074 proposed, give kaffeine a try.

Hi, just tell I too had this problem on my laptop but found it was nothing to do with VLC but a KDE default setting which turns off screen after 10 mins even when power is connected. Check out system settings and then power profiles. The global setting should be “performance” and in Profiles the “performance” profile should have all boxes unchecked so times are greyed out. Worked for me.
