Air Parrot and ATV 2

I got a Late 2008 macbook pro. Mountain Lion does not support air mirror on these machines. So I Install Air Parrot and it works great! But my question is, when I am on a middle of "mirroring" or "Air mirror" My apple TV 2 will go into screen savers mode. Anyone experience this? I was watching the olympics; my Mac is on my bedroom and I'm in the Kitchen, which is my kitchen TV connected to my ATV2. Then in the middle of something screensaver mode.

I know disable Screen savers but... I dont want to go into that trouble enable, disable kinda mode.

I tried Air Mirror on my newer machine which is flawless absolutely flawless.

I have the same late 2008 Macbook Pro and I recently tried Air Parrot. I didn't end up in screen saver but the overall quality was quite poor.
