No Locking
PREVENT SCREEN LOCKING/BLOCKING
when you don't want it to; like in the middle of a movie.

Mouse Mover

Mouse Mover: Go to Menu --> Sound & Video --> Mouse Mover before watching a video. This should prevent the screen from blanking. If you can watch a video for over 10 minutes without the screen going black, full-length movie watching will be fine.
