Angry Screensaver opening while I'm watching movies

When I'm watching movies with VLC, I'm not touching the computer for quite a while. That causes the KDE screensaver to start >.<

Is there any way I can stop this from happenning, without disabling the screensaver altogether? If not, I will keep it disabled. I don't usually like to have a screensaver, but that ant spotlight one is so cool =)

I know in mplayer there is an option to disable the screensaver, is there an option like that for VLC?
