    Is there a setting in Windows XP so I can use my media player via keyboard
    shortcuts and my screensaver doesn't end?Usually it ends as soon as I touch
    the keyboard/mouse.

    It's suppose to do that. There are some screensavers that only cancel when
    you press the hotkey combination, but the ones I've seen all load the
    machine down with spyware.
