I've made a composition that allows user input only via a microphone. (For an 11-month old who likes to scream with delight!) Because there's no mouse or keyboard interaction, the screen saver keeps coming on and killing the mood. I'm aware that I could disable the screen saver on my computer, but I don't think it's reasonable to expect a user to change system settings to enable an occasionally-used app to function as expected.

I propose that either:

  1. a vuo.window node that creates a window property enabling or disabling the screen saver; or
  2. a setting for all compositions that automatically disables the screen saver when running an app in full screen.

We're thinking of implementing this as a standalone node, rather than a window property node, since it applies system-wide. Having it as a node rather than an editor setting would enable it to work for exported apps.
