Thank for your help However I'm a newbie with Kindle I don't really understand what you mean. You mean i have to install a software named "usbnetworking" on my Kindle and type in the command that you said ??? Do i have to jailbreak my Kindle ??? please give me more detail or if you have a link about it ???

Enter ~ds in the searchbar and hit enter. This disables the screensaver until next reboot.
