Then you'd better set it to come on after 2 hours of inactivity, because I think that watching video without touching a remote, a keyboard or a mouse counts as inactivity.
I'll be curious if anyone knows of another fix for this. I just don't use a screensaver.
Isn't there a hotkey to turn on the screensaver early? (I don't recall what it is.) Maybe you could teach her that for her to turn it on when she wants, but otherwise could have it set to only come on after a 2 or 3 hours.
