$ man mplayer
-stop-xscreensaver (X11 only)
Turns off xscreensaver at startup and turns it on again on exit.
If your screensaver supports neither the XSS nor XResetScreen-
Saver API please use -heartbeat-cmd instead.
That being said, that flag didn't work for me with gnome-screensaver (it
works just fine with xscreensaver). The referenced "heartbeat-cmd" flag
and the example included in the manpage works just fine, though. Any of
those options can be included in one's ~/.mplayer/config file to be
automatically used during any mplayer session.
