Hi! I've just installed new Fedora 19 GNOME version and I have really weird issue. When I play a movie on the internet long enough to cause my monitor fall asleep I'm loosing control over my computer. I mean I can move the cursor with a mouse (it's necessary to constantly move the mouse, because monitor falls asleep almost immediately), but I can't minimalize the window or do any other action. Only one solution I can figure out is to restart X, login again and kill all "chrome" processes.
I really woudn't like to be forced to change system, but this 'feature' is something that I just can't stand. Any help would be appreciated.

What happens when you use a browser other than Chrome?

What happens when you remove flash?

Well - I have installed Xfce and problem seems to be solved for now. I didn't check how it will work with another browser or flash plugin (I'm using pepper flash which was included with google-chrome-fedora RPM package). I didn't want to use GNOME 3 anyway, and there seems to be package conflict. Thanks for your attention
