Yes, actually. But if the movie player doesn't do this, why should we forbid 
the user from being able to easily do it? After all, the user might actually 
*want* the screen to go blank after an hour. My own wife can't seem to fall 
asleep at night without watching TV or a movie but that doesn't mean she would 
mind if the TV/monitor turned off when she was sleeping.

Either way it sounds like this has been a bunch more "hub-bub" than was 
strictly necessary, seems the idea is that the user would just change the 
options for the current profile, instead of changing which profile is in 
effect at the time.
