Windows 7: Screensaver Won't Turn On After Video Playback

Screensaver Won't Turn On After Video Playback

I am having a problem with the screensaver turning on after video playback on Windows Media Player. When I used to have Vista, I would watch a video before going to bed, and the monitor would go to screensaver and shut off after the video had finished. Ever since using Windows 7, WMP would keep the monitor on throughout the night. Essentially disabling the screensaver. I could check the Allow Screensaver During Playback option, but I wouldn't want it to come on while I'm watching. Is there any way to fix this problem?

Another way I've been trying to work around this is to set the Allow Screensaver During Playback option on, and setting my screensaver to go off in 45 minutes. But I wouldn't want to always have to keep changing these setting every time.
