when watching a movie screen goes black

I have a Hp Pavilion g7-2022us Notebook.  When watching netflix my screen goes black after about 15 min.  Then I hit space bar and it comes back on.  Why won't the screen stay on for whole movie?  I set screen saver longer then movie.

Open windows Control Panel, open Power Options, next to your currently selected power plan click Change plan settings.  In the following windows, next to the heading 'Turn off the display:' click the dropdown box and select Never - set this for both battery and Plugged-in if required.


Click the 'Save changes' button to keep the new settings.
