You can let the Kindle go to sleep and your screensaver will show. However, having "the screen on" does not drain your battery.

That depends on which kindle it is, Ed. Given the OP is talking about youtube I'd suspect they have a Fire, in which case (being backlit) having the screen on does drain the battery.

Ah, yes, CBP. I totally missed that. Must have been past my bedtime.
