XBMC supports DPMS off, which seems to disable the screensaver.
Following is a patch which checks against the new system.dpmsactive infolabel in addition to system.screensaveractive.
if there is no such infolabel (current stable xbmc 13.2), xbmc should just return false but no error.

Will be considered for a future version for Helix, but probably in a different way (using callbacks etc.).
