That's what goofs up and is reset on each startup! Yet the regular plan options maintain the same changes when going into the advanced section for each to set the require password on wakeup and display to never there.

I'm thinking about simply selecting the high performance option and dumping the custom plan option until I have the retail version here since that's onlly 2 months away now.

Wallpaper Slideshow also supports a different image on each monitor.

Wallpaper Slideshow LT - Automatically change your desktop wallpaper

The Pro version also does the cool fade in/out of multiple images like W7 can but can do it on dual monitors with 2 different images which no other wallpaper program I found could.

Is the download seen there shareware or do they offer a free version?

It goes on fast enough! The only problem with it changing randomly is one wallpaper will leave borders while the other one fills up the entire screen on the opposited monitor when you have a collection of papers at different screen sizes.

My power options remain the same after startup. Maybe something wrong with your system?

The problem with that is only the 64bit 7 is running into this. XP, Vista, and the 32bit RC all remember the power settings while two of those are no longer on here. And this is about the 6th or 7th installation of the 64bit RC on different drives as well suggesting a slight problem with the original dvd burned.

Eventually I'll be upgrading out of this case entirely which would automatically rule out any hardware problems once the newer boards supporting USB 3.0 become available. By then I'll be running the retail 7 and shouldn't be seeing any of this then.

I still use Wallpaper Master Pro, which I have been using since Windows 98 days, still works a charm and has a lot more options than other wallpaper changer software

That one may be good for a single display but where is the options with that for a second monitor?
