Windows 7: Sound/music playback stops entirely after some time

Sound/music playback stops entirely after some time

When I'm playing music with Mediamonkey (or other programs), after about 10 minutes the screen goes black and the sound stops, which is really annoying (I have to press any button to wake the PC up).

How can I change this?

Is your harddrive set to go to 'sleep'? Check your power save settings.

Yeah, but if Windows recognizes media players, it shouldn't turn the screen off while they're running. I found a script for MM that prevents the screen from turning off, so I guess this is solved.
