I set the option for UMPlayer to disable the screen saver when using it - but the screen saver STILL functions when I use it, how do I resolve that issue?

I just had a similar issue, and found that there are three screen blankers/powersavers involved; The command line has one, X another, and the hardware in the monitor has the third. I made a script that, at least on my machine, keeps the screen alive:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
setterm -blank 0 -powerdown 0
xset s off
xset -dpms

Great! Now how do I use it with UMPlayer, and will the screen saver be re enabled once I close UMPlayer?

This is totally separate from UMPlayer. To undo the commands, use something like:
Code:
setterm -blank 30 -powerdown 30
xset s on
xset +dpms

You could write a script that first turns off all screensavers, launches umplayer, and then executes these commands when the media player is closed.
