I read the help file and i know with XP blockinput stops user but allows autoit, but while Blockinput is active and autoit is sending keystrokes and mouse movements is the computer still considered idle?

No, the scripted actions should reset the idle timer for things like the Screen Saver. Easy to test. Make yourself a script that cycles something with BlockInput() on for about 2 minutes, and run it with your screen saver set for 1 minute.
