Hibernate Screensaver

Any1 got any idea?
I tried the Task Scheduler, but got no luck.

Since I always leave my computer Open, I want it to Hibernate after a minute or 2, just in case I forget(I always forget :P).

Sleep or hibernate?

The whole point of hibernate is to save the session to disk and power down the pc. Hibernate and screensaver go together like square peg & round hole.

Hibernate >.> don't mind the screensaver part.

I just want it to automatically Hibernate when I stay AFK for 5 minutes.

Please no Softwares (:

If you go to Change plan settings then to Change Advanced Power Settings, you will find a menu.
Go down to sleep.
Expand sleep and you will see hibernate after..
You can set a time as you want.
If hibernate is not on the list you will have to enable it.

To do this, click Start, All Programs then Accessories. Right-click on Command Prompt and choose Run as Administrator. In the DOS box type powercfg -h on and press the Enter key.

Screensavers are obsolete unless you have a CRT monitor which can burn in a static image.

Turn off the screensaver and use Win7 backgrounds slideshow by rightclicking Desktop>Personalize>Desktop Background.

You can download 120 spectacular national editions Win7 backgrounds, using slideshow to have a new one every time you start your computer: 120 Original Windows 7 High Resolution Scenery Regional Wallpapers Free Download My Digital Life

Once you've eliminated screensaver interference, make sure Hibernate is enabled and set as desired in Control Panel>Power Options>Change Plan settings>Advanced>Sleep>Hibernate.
