It works here. Though it's quite annoying that the mouse
pointer jumps around :)

Little side question: Would your approach work also,
if the mouse pointer is on a different screen?
I have two screens and i often do something on the
second screen while watching something, with long periods
of idleness in between. Of course, without letting the
mouse pointer jump around on the second screen.

While you are at it, can you make this value configurable?
