How do I disable the screen saver when running full screen applications.

Using vista 64bit, and I cannot figure out how to disable the screensaver for full screen apps.   I know how to do it for WMP, but When watching a video online fullscreen it goes to saver.   Used to be able to do it with xp.  
Hello deadeyea09,
Welcome and thank you for posting on Microsoft Answers - Vista Community Forums!

We need more information to be able to assist on this issue.

1.     Which are the full screen applications that you are using?

2.     Which website are we using to play video online? 

The options to disable screensaver need to have within that particular player while watching movies online, If there is no option to disable it then we need to disable the screensaver manually. Please follow below instructions to disable it manually:

1)    Click on start and then control panel

2)    Click on personalize

3)    Click on screen saver

4)    Select NONE under screensaver

5)    Click on Apply and close the window

Please let us know if it helps.

Thanks and Regards,
