Whenever my Gnome screen saver kicks in my music (from rhythmbox) stops. How can I keep it playing even though the screen is blank? Of course I could disable the screen saver but I actually like screen being blanked after some time (less light).

hmm, actually I just got a stupid idea: My speakers are in my monitor (via HDMI) so it might be that the monitor just goes to sleep on screen blank...

maybe try separate speakers if you have....
