    If I'm watching a movie/video etc, Is there a quick and easy way to disable the screen saver / the screen from reducing it's brightness / the system from going to sleep ? (and if so, how to re-enable them again?)

    I'm actually in need of this feature now. Installing this little program is completely safe, right? ; I'm going to follow their "Direct download" link...

    Aside,

    I'm also going to be running a Windows 7 virtual machine through Parallels. Running Caffeine's no dim / no sleep features should override any existing Windows 7 sleep / dim mechanisms?

    Yep, perfectly safe.

    For the Parallels thing, I would have thought so.
