Prior to Silverlight update 5.1.10411.0 that was pushed via Windows Update on 5/8/2012, I could watch uninterrupted videos on Netflix using the Chrome browser on my Win7 Ult 64bit desktop.

Since this above update, the screen turns off after the time set in Windows 7 Control Panel > Power Options > Plan Settings > Plugged In setting for "Turn off the display". 

Clearly, the new 5.1.10411.0 update is not suppressing the Windows 7 screen off function, and while not tested, probably not suppressing the screensaver on function either.
