Restores frequently from Full-Screen mode

    I'm having this problem whenever I watch DVDs in Full-Screen, it
    automatically Restores to window mode after say 5 to 10 mins. It gets
    annoying as I cannot sit back and enjoy a movie in its entirety without
    having to hit Full-Screen every 10 mins or so.

    Doesn't anyone know how to remedy this issue?

    What video card driver are you using? Historically, this sort of thing is
    caused by problems in the video card driver...

  5. I wonder if you can go to one of the drop down menus, say under the
    Now Playing tab, choose More Options. On the Player tab of those
    menus, is 'Allow screen saver during playback' ticked ?

    It's just that the regular frequency of this makes me wonder if you
    have a screen saver or similar kicking in.

    Cheers - Neil

    Hi, no it's not that, I purposely move my mouse while watching for a while
    just to check on that. Then lo and behold, about 5-10 mins, the screen just
    restores!... :(

    Any help would be appreciated...
