Rar Files & Screen Saver

When I'm playing a MP3 in WMP from a MP3 in a RAR file my screen saver does not come on until I close the RAR file, any ideas why ?

What you had suggested is what I had originally thought would solve the problem, now I know that it probably will only solve it

The problem is not because I'm playing the mp3 file from within a compressed RAR file, it's Windows Media Player. When I play a MP3 file on the not from within a compressed RAR file the screen saver does come on, I could wait 10 minutes and nothing happens.
