VM constantly going into powersaver mode

Hi there, I was watching some streaming video yesterday on my Windows 10 x64 VM and noticed every 2 minutes or so the VM would present a blank (black screen) and I would have to move the mouse to resume video displaying on the screen. Audio continues to play but the screen turns blank unless I keep moving the mouse while watching. I disabled screen timeout under power mode on the Guest VM and set the screensaver to 30 minutes. Any idea when this is happening? It is happening whether the physical machine (laptop) is plugged in or on battery.
