Windows 7: screensaver and BF2

21 Jan 2010   #1

Win 7
screensaver and BF2

my screensaver will not automatically start whenever I exit BF2.
the only solution then is manually starting it or rebooting.
I have no idea where to start. It works fine before I start the game. After the 3 hours of playing I do, the screensaver will not play.
I'm using evga's precision, but honestly this problem precedes it's installation.

Can you verify that the screensaver is still enabled after you shut down the game? Maybe the game is disabling it?

I assume you have the 1.5 patch installed? If so depending on when you installed it and where you got it from it may not include this,

Battlefield 2 v1.50 Patch Alt Tab Hotfix Download - Fileshack - Download PC Video game patches, videos, betas, trailers for PC.

don't let the name fool you, this issue happened to quite a few people after installing 1.5 and that hotfix fixed it (I was one of them as well).

Video Screensaver for Logon Screensaver
Hi, I have a couple of Windows 7 Pro (x86) machines that are used as kiosks in public locations. I'd like to have the computers display a video on the screen, presumably as a screensaver, while no one is logged in to Windows. Usage sessions with the kiosks are short. Folks usually just want to...

Is there any website that you can download free screensavers from? I checked a few random sites from the Wallpaper sticky thread, but didn't see any? I don't really have anything in mind, just something that may catch my eye. Matt
