Disable screen saver/sleep while playing music. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an app called Power Hour DJ.
    Basically it plays 60 songs (1 minute each) while you watch photos go by.

    I have gotten feedback that I need to disable the screen savers while people are watching the photos go by.

    I just want to disable it while the 1 hour is going on. If they pause or stop playing music I want to renable the screen saver.
    How do I do that?
    Is there a WinRT API?
    Do I need to do a hack like play a transparent/hidden video to keep the screen saver from coming?
