    Creating a hotkey to disable screen sleeping
    When I am watching hulu online, or any other flash, the screen dims, then sleeps.

    I know there is a way to change this in energy saver but I am wanting to set it up to a hotkey.

    I am assuming this is going to take an application as it is not a hotkey you can add in the keyboard prefpane.

    Any suggestions on how to go about this?

    have a look at this if you want to try applescript, or at least applescript was what I thought could do the trick
    Apple - Support - Discussions - Changing Energy Saver prefs with ...

    looks like in the end they end up using pmset ... anyway, it should work for you

    or you can try this:
    Suspend Energy Saver 0.2 « Tumbleseed

    just a quick google, not my work
