Windows 7: Screensaver Options

25 Oct 2010   #1

Windows XP
Screensaver Options


Are there any screensavers for both XP and Windows 7 that you can activate to come on as usual, but I want it to go off aswell.


Screensaver comes on after 30mins but only stays on for 2 mins, then screen comes back on. This is to stop screen burn on a display TV that is on the wall.

Thanks :)

You've highlighted your problem, cut the time from 30 mins to 10 or 15 mins, to increase your screensaver time.

If I remember correctly you have only 30 mins as a total Shutdown/Screensaver time.

Also modern LCD screens rarely suffer from image burn, that was a problem with the old CRT screens

My screensaver and my power options are constantly chan
I set my screensaver to "Photos" but it is automatically being reset to "None". The same with my Power options. I set the monitor to never shut down. But then it is being reset to 20 minutes. My suspicion is that this happens when I change the Desktop background - but not always. Any ideas?
