Windows 7: Screensaver Help

07 Feb 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate

I am having this problem with video playback on WMP. When I used to have Vista, I would watch a video before going to bed, and the monitor would go to screensaver and shut off after the video had finished. Ever since using Win7, WMP would keep the monitor on throughout the night. Essentially disabling the screensaver. I could check the Allow Screensaver During Playback option, but I wouldn't want it to come on while I'm watching. Is there any way to fix this problem?

Another way I've been trying to work around this is to set the Allow Screensaver During Playback option on, and setting my screensaver to go off in 45 minutes. But I wouldn't want to always have to keep changing these setting every time.

I've been using the same "The Matrix" screensaver since, I think, Windows was born. This one: It's pretty cool and definitely the best Matrix screensaver out there. I know. I use "The Red Pill" on my Macs and the ones that are on my Linux box...
