If thats not what you want to be able to do I'm probably miss understanding you, if so, sorry about it.

ShexNivis wrote:edit2: I just realized that maybe what you want to do is exactly the opposite to what I thought. If you use the screensaver and you want to temporarily disable it for a while, open a terminal and type "gnome-screensaver-command -i" you will see that the terminal is 'locked', for the time that you keep that terminal open no screensaver should appear. When you done you can go back to that terminal and press Ctrl+C to stop the "inhibition" of the screensaver.
