Windows screen saver pauses the AVI rendering

If I start an  AVI export going when I leave for the evening and the screen saver kicks in, it pauses the AVI rendering, resulting in a black screen where the 3D window should have been in the resulting AVI.

Disabling the screen saver is not an option- is there something within Synchro to combat this?

    To continue rendering the AVI when the Windows screen is locked or in screen saver, use the DirectX 11 driver. You can choose this option in the Content tab of the AVI export window. DirectX 11 is available in Synchro PRO 5.0 and higher. For older versions of Synchro, the OpenGL and OpenGL 2 drivers will also render when the screen is locked.
