I've done a fairly cursory search through the forum, and haven't seen my specific issue mentioned, so here goes. I have Win7 and the screensaver is acting weird. Before anyone asks, I've checked all the settings regarding the amount of time before the screensaver comes on, before the computer goes to sleep, power settings, and that sort of thing. None of them have anything to do with this issue.I have also altered, over the past few weeks, all the settings on when the screensaver should come on, password setting, etc. to try to see if that had any effect. It did not. The screensaver won't come on by itself, unless it's from a cold start up, or if I reboot. That means to me that something is running that is preventing it from starting. So, I checked the Windows Task Manager, and found that it is still running in the background, by checking the "running processes" There's no way to say this that isn't awkward to me, but if I have the screensaver running because the computer has been idle long enough, and come back to it and move the mouse or press a key on the keyboard, the desktop comes back up. I don't know what that process is called, "reawakening"? Anyway, if I go into the Task Manager and do an "end process" on the screensaver program, it will then come on by itself after the set idle time elapses, the next time I let it go unused for that long. Then, in order to get it to come back on again, I have to go back to Task Manager and End Process to get it to ever come back. Lather, Rinse, Repeat. The problem is this: What do I have to do to make the screensaver stop running entirely when the computer comes back up after being idle long enough to turn the screensaver on? Thanks!
