    Turning off screensaver for specific program


    I play Anno 1800 and when i leave my computer for a while my screensaver turns on and that causes my game to crash.

    Is there any way to turn off screensaver only when i play that game or do i have to turn it off completely and when i finish playing

    turn it on again?


    Thanks

    :)

  2. Can't Remove Screensavers


    Well since there is no way to uninstall the two screensavers I made it was suggested I uninstall the program. Unfortunately, even after uninstalling Axialis Screensaver, the screensavers I made are still listed. Not a big deal just wonder where the data is hiding? Normally they should of been created in the system32 folder but in searching none where found. *Mad

    I would suggest you to try the following steps and check if that helps.

    • Go to the folder C:\Windows\System32 and sort by file type.
    • Look for the screensaver file type (.scr).
    • Find the file scrnsave.scr(you can choose any of the screensavers).
    • Right click and select send to>desktop (create shortcut). The shortcut on my attachment, but when i click on it my screen goes off and on and nothing else.Turning off screensaver for specific program :)

    How to turn a program into a screensaver

    I have this event in which I have several computers set up, and I want it so that they use this program as their screensaver. What I mean by this is the program will run like normal, but as a screensaver. In this case I want it to go through the algorithms, except bogo and bozo sort, and when the screensaver goes through all of the algorithms, it goes back to the beginning of the list and does it again. I this possible, or is there a screensaver that looks identical and does what I described?
