FIX: Watching Hulu Monitor Goes into Sleep Mode

Since getting a vista computer i've had tons of little annoyances. One of which is while watching a video on Hulu vista totally ignores that and sends the monitor into standby after the user specified idle time duration. So for me the monitor goes blank after 20 minutes of sitting and watching the Hulu vidoe even though my computer isn't really idle. Your sleep settings may give you more or less time before the screen goes blank. Regardless, it's very annoying.

To workaround this problem run media player in the background. Run the music muted on a continual loop. This will trick vista into realizing your pc is in fact not idle.

Remember to stop the music when you're done if you want your computer to be able to stand by without your input.
