Hey Guys,

I have Windows 7 setup in a dual boot configuration with Windows XP. I have the screen saver set to come on after 20 minutes....but nothing. The laptop can sit for hours and the screen saver will not turn on. Is anyone else having this problem? Has anyone solved it? Thanks.

InDiSent,

I just came back down from tonight's experimentation with Win7.

Haven't run into that one yet.

My issues this evening were slow overall speed and E-mail with Win Mail.

I'll try to replicate your issue tomorrow night. :) :)

Regards,
Rick P.

I decided to try the screen saver using my photos and it actually worked. I was trying the 3D text before. Not sure why that is but it's fine since i like using my photos as screen saver anyway.

The W7 screen saver seems to be a step backwards. I was unable to use a video as screen saver like in Vista. Has anybody figured that out?
