    I've noticed that when watching long videos, windows power-saving will often kick in and blank the monitors. This can be very aggravating.

    The attached patch will fix the issue.

    Hi Flaamwing,

    Thank you for your patch.

    After discussing this with the team and doing some research in the code we found out that your patch would interfere with PowerScheduler plugin (it also uses SetThreadExecutionState(), and the calls could cancel each other). The proper solution would be to either coordinate calls to SetThreadExecutionState(), or even better have some central control of MP's power states.

    As a result I have to reject your patch.
