This won't help the original poster (on Fedora 14), but for others: A work-around for Gnome3 is the presentation-mode extension. Description from rpm:

Gnome-Presentation-Mode is a tiny gnome-shell extension that adds a new entry to the power indicator (the menu that opens when you click the battery icon). While presentation mode is on the screen saver and the automatic suspend will not kick in, allowing you to sit back and enjoy whatever you are doing without having to wiggle the mouse every few minutes.

Sadly, this doesn't help much in the scenario where you fall asleep watching a movie, but it's better than nothing. I've been meaning to code a little timer app to deal with this for a while now... just never seems important enough. Oh well.

yum install gnome-shell-extension-presentation-mode --enablerepo=updates-t
