Windows 7: Dual monitor: Screen saver on one

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Dual monitor: Screen saver on one

With dual monitors, is there a way that I can have one active while the screen saver activates on the other.
I have an HDTV connect through HDMI and an LCD connected through DVI. Im running Windows 7 Ultimate. While watching television on the HDTV with Media Center Id like the screen saver to kick in on the LCD.
