That doesn't seem to do anything bad.

In fact, I think the second time it happened the screen never went
black - just the random photo thing was on. But no, forcing the screen
saver on doesn't do it either (ie pressing the "lock screen" icon and
waiting for a few pictures to cycle).

Maybe the screen just has to be inactive for a longer time: do you do
some dynamic "let's power things down if nothing is changing"?
