    If you play a video using external player, when the video finishes (or you exit/stop the player) when you return to mediaportal it will restore to fullscreen, then about .5 sec later the screen will blank (inbuilt screensaver).

    It's not nice usability to come back to a blanked screen after watching a movie.

    Steps to reproduce
    1. enable screen blank screensaver
    2. watch video > timeout for screen saver
    3. return to mepo
    4. screen will briefly flash then will go blank
    5. press a key to cancel screen saver

    Wasn't sure if this was a bug or feature request, I suspect the former but I couldn't remember where the bug subforum was :p lol
