Screensaver occasionally going beserk

I'm using Bubbles and approx every 4 days the screensaver increases in speed to about a zillion mph. My pc runs 24/7. Activation by the mouse always returns me to the desktop with no problems, I just wondered why the occasional massive speed increase.

There are several solutions which haven't worked for anyone in the thread but may work for you at bubbles screen saver very fast after sitting for sometime.

Might change my searching technique though - I should have found the link myself.
Thanks again.
