Currently, by default, energy saving and the screensaver is disabled

This re-enables them when the video is paused. Fixes bug #2112

I'm not sure everyone likes this behaviour.
It might be better to add an option to choose the behaviour.

I'd also vote for a selectable behaviour. A user may want to observe a picture of a paused stream, and then annoyingly the screensaver interferes...

Should I add a new separate option? Or would it be better to have a single option for selecting the desired behaviour? Something like:

-stop-xscreensaver true|false|on_playback
