Win7, Sony Vaio... Is there anyway to temporarily disable the put monitor to sleep function when XYZ application is running?

The same behaviour as say Media Player - when it is playing a video then the monitor sleep (and screen saver) function is disabled - can I add XYZ to this???

I don't want to turn sleep off all together, and I don't want to keep manually changing settings. I was hoping there'd be a smarter way, somehow?!?!?

(I am running a streaming video application that was not meant for Win7 - but I got it working - but Windows is not recognising it as a video application so is activating the sleep function while I am watching the video)
