    Yeah, i had a similar problem with Vista, only not with Windows media player (it worked fine, disables screensaver during playback), but with Media Player Classic. But it wasn't the screensaver that would start, but the monitor would shut down after 45 mins of not moving my mouse (it is set to do so, but i don't expect it to if i watch a movie). I found an edition of MPC which has this problem fixed, so now i use it for watching movies. If you want to give it a try, just go to http://www.jtow.net/users/triess/ , and the player can be found near the bottom of the page (dude says it's his personal edition).
    Hope it helps.
    Cheers
