Windows 7: No Screensaver on Logon Screen

No Screensaver on Logon Screen

My wife and I each have user accounts and we "Switch User" back and forth all the time, and sometimes leave it at the logon screen with our two icons to click on.

In XP, the screensaver would run on the logon screen, but I'm noticing that nothing happens from the logon in 7. We have use the photo screensaver which makes it a digital picture frame of sorts, but if you leave it at the logon, you'll come back an hour later to see our two icons waiting for you.

Has the screensaver on logon been removed or is there a configuration I'm missing?

Hmmm. There are no Screensaver keys in that location in my registry and I've always been a little hesitant to merge in any .REG files... In mine, all I have there is a DragFullWindows, three font smoothing ones and a user preferences one.

The REG file only has that one key while I see that in Vista there at least three other keys that need to be there, which leads one to believe that either they moved it or removed it.
