Before kicking SETI off check your Windows Screensaver settings. As far as I'm aware the only way the screensaver (of any type) can be started, or continue to run, is for the operating system to call it and permit it. Many operating systems only look at "human input" activity to determine if the computer is in use, thus just watching a video may not be counted as "in use", so up pops the the screensaver over whatever you were trying to watch.
