[Lazarus] "Defeating" a screen saver

I appreciate that there might be no guaranteed portable answer to this 
one, and FWIW I'm primarily interested in the Linux+X+KDE combination.

If a program knows that something's going on that it might later need to 
tell the user about, e.g. that there's serial comms going on in the 
background even if the GUI's not being updated, is it possible to do 
anything that the LCL and lower levels will interpret similarly to 
keyboard and mouse activity in order to prevent a screen saver from 
kicking in?
