[FFmpeg-user] ffplay.exe prevents monitor standby in Windows

I have a security camera rtsp feed continuously streaming via ffplay.exe in
Windows. As I understand it, ffplay disables SDL_VIDEO_ALLOW_SCREENSAVER in
order to prevent standby/sleep.

Is there a way to turn this default behavior off so that the monitor can go
to standby after the user set period of time?
