    windows 8 screensaver turns on over youtube


    Hi all, i noticed the screen saver in windows 8 preview 32 bit comes on while watching youtube videos. I also have windows 7 and it waits till the video is over then starts the timer for the screen saver. Im running it thru vmware. doubt it make a difference thou. I was wondering if theres any kind of fix for this.
