Power saving kicks in when DVD is playing

I've noticed that if you're watching a fullscreen DVD the power saving settings still kicks in (i.e. it goes to sleep). Is there any way to disable these power saving settings whenever you're running a fullscreen application?

Are you using Apple's DVD Player application? One of the benefits I've found is that it will prevent screen dimming, etc. when a DVD is playing.
The best way to do it is to set up a custom power profile that basically turns off ALL power saving, and quickly switch to it using the power icon in the menu bar.

I noticed the same problem and I am using my MBP out of the box, so it is absolutely the native DVD player. It was a very disappointing first impression of the machine that is supposed to be so user-friendly and intuitive.

that is very odd, i would take a quick browse of dvd.app's preferences and if that doesnt work go and play with your energy settings in system preferences.
