 I'm not aware of any universal way that'd work everywhere. There have been some discussions about this on the xdg list, but without any real result AFAIK. The best right now should be suspending both the internal X screensaver and DPMS (since you should to do that anyway, if you run without any screensaver program), the KDE screensaver should not activate if either of these two is suspended, I don't know about others.
