Screen saver takes me to log out screen

Q: Screen saver takes me to log out screen

Slowly but surly I am getting the system up and running...now we are in the fine tuning stage...
I now have the screen saver working, but there is one slight catch, after the screen saver has been on for a while and I move the mouse, the screen clears and what is left behind is the log on logo and I have to click on that to get back to the primary screen,
How do not have to go to the log off screen and just continue with my screen/window that I was on before the screen saver kicked in.

I use Toshiba Satellite Laptop with Windows XP Prof SP2.

After 10-15 minutes of idle time, my laptop launches a plan screen saver. When i move the mouse i get the Windows logon. Since i am part of my corporate AD, i have to provide my credentials.

After giving the credentials, its taking almost 2minutes to launch the screen. till then i only see an empty blue screen. during this 2 minutes, my mouse is functional.

Following are some of the two major things i did, but still have the same problem.

1. Display properties, Screen saver tab, Screen saver drop down says Windows XP, Wait is 15 minutes, and the check box "On resume, password protect" is enabled. But all these controls are completely disabled with the above values. When i click the Settings button, i get the following message "This screen saver has no options that you can set". Since i wanted to completely disable this screen saver options, i went to gpedit.msc then went to User Configuration->Administrative Templates->Control Panel->Display and disabled the following settings

a. Screen Saver
b. Password protect the screen saver
c. Screen Saver timeout.

Also, one more information, i did all this through my AD user login in my laptop. This user is given administrative privileges
2. Since i have the toshiba power saver configured, i went in to toshiba power saver settings and made the settings as NEVER for Monitor Turn off and Hard disk turn off for the all the power profiles.

XP Service Pack 3

Screensaver is enabled and so is 'Display welcome screen when coming back from screensaver'.

This works most of the time, however on a regular basis the screensaver will resume to the following screen and just stay there forever.


The only thing to do is to press the power button, at which point a popup alerts that a user is logged in, do you still want to shut down.

Thanks,

I am aware of the Screen Saver setup and modify capabilities in the Personalization menu. I am also aware that there is a Preview button there also.
There is a program in the Windows system files that you can put on the Taskbar at the bottom of the screen. You can then click this Icon and manually start the Screen Saver.
I however (in my infinite stupidity) have forgotten the name of this program and where it is located. Can someone please tell me what its name is and where it is located?

I did an upgrade from Win 7 , and Screen Saver / Turn off display after 5 mins was working under Win 7 64 bit
As my title suggest Screen Saver / Lock screen Slideshow / Turn off display after 5 mins are not working under Win 10
The Lock screen Slideshow is there when Win 10 starts but only shows ONE image, never moves to another.
THINGS I've done so far to get any of these working ...Screen Saver / Lock screen Slideshow / Turn off display after 5 mins
I’ve turned off all the Wake on lan functions
Tried different folder/ images for the lockscreen Slideshow ,window spotlight and picture
Tried to set new power options , was able to get SLEEP to show up in "Start" as it was not there before, but once click , the display DID turn off, but wouldn’t turn back on with mouse movement keyboard presses, had to do a hard reboot. Win 10 started without issue and the SLEEP mode was no longer aviable via the power "start" menu.
Anyone have a clue how to get all of these working. Really would like my display to turn off after 5 mins , and the Screen saver to work , the Lockscreen I'm not fussed about

Hi,
I have a Dell 1750 Inspiron laptop that I use "as a desktop" as every piece of hardware is connected to it.
It runs with Windows 7 Home Edition. It has a 4gb memory and a 450gb hard drive which is less than half used.

I have the screen saver set to Photos and usually have a cut-in time of 1 hour idle.

The screen saver cuts in exactly when it should and scrolls through my photos for as long as the laptop is left idle.

However, as soon as I touch the mouse/keyboard, instead of reverting to the "normal" screen the photos disappear, the blank screen fades for a few seconds and then a message appears in a box, saying that the Photos Screen Saver is not responding, and gives the options of either close the program or wait for the programme to respond. Waiting doesn't seem to work so I have to click on close the programme and then cancel the statement that Windows will try to find a solution, because it doesn't!

I have tried to vary the time before the screen saver kicks in, anything from 1 minute to several hours but it doesn't seem to make any difference.

Can anyone help please?

A:Photo Screen Saver wont revert back to live screen

Have you checked the timing for when the HDD turns off or Sleep or Hibernation kicks in [I disable both of those and lengthen the time on the HDD to several hours], Control Panel, Power Options?

The reason I mentioned the HDD is the symptoms you mentioned seem to apply. The screen saver could be in memory and not affected by the HDD until it's asked for something.

Hibernation in it self saves everything thats in RAM at the time the system is put into that mode. It should not lock the PC as that wasn't the state it was in before it hibernated. perhaps lock the PC before you push the hibernate button!

I have set up my Win 7 Pro 64-bit screen saver to bring up the password logon screen upon activation of the mouse/keyboard/whatever.

Late last week, whenever I moved the mouse or clicked the keyboard, the screensaver would go directly to the desktop, bypassing the logon screen. I went to the screensaver utility and unchecked and rechecked the 'On resume, display the logon screen' box, selecting 'Apply and OK' each time.

This would work for maybe two or three times and then go back to returning to the desktop.

I've run MalwareBytes, IOBit, and Norton and all come up virus/rootkit free.

Any ideas?

A:Screen Saver to password logon screen failing

There are a few seconds of "grace" time, meaning when the screensaver launches you have a few seconds to "wake it" and go back to your desktop without locking it.

I guess I can assume you're not talking about that, right?

I have a very strange problem, I'm stumped and would appreciate any help.
On my new HP6910 laptop, when my XP Pro SP3 (system default XP) Screen Saver comes on, the screen has a partial heavily corrupted copy of the bottom taskbar at the top of the screen (!) and when I ctrl-alt-delete and enter my password the taskbar at the bottom is missing all of its text but otherwise looks reasonable. The Oulook, Word, and other started tasks in the taskbar at the bottom of the screen have their icons, just no text, even if there is a group of them and you hover the mouse over the group and they expand. Most of them still work, but Windows Desktop Search (WDS) doesn't work and I have to close them and restart them. This seemed to start a few days after I installed WDS, added a DVI monitor to the docking station and the same day I installed Activesync 4.5. I've reinstalled WDS and removed my wallpaper but this didn't help, I'm about to reinstall Activesync but it takes a few hours to sync for the first time so I thought I would see if anybody had any other ideas before doing this.
All help is greatly appreciated!

I am having a very wierd issue with vista's screen saver. So basically when I leave the comp idle it goes into screen saver then turns off the monitor after 15 mins. Sometimes, more often than not, I come back and move the mouse and hit a few keys on the keyboard and nothing. The monitor wont come out of standby I try turning it off and back on, and nothing. I have the latest drivers for everything in my system and I checked the power management settings and they both are able to wake the computer up. I have a G15 keyboard and I keep the leds on and when this happens the leds are off and the lazer for the mouse is off too. Any suggestions as to what my problem is would be fantastic!

Hi, first post here by a rather happy Lenovo Yoga 13 + Windows 8 user.

As the topic says, is it possible to have the lockscreen turn on automatically after a few minutes?

As it is now I can only get to the lock screen after waking up the computer from the screen saver. I would like to have it configured so that the traditional screen saver is bypassed and it goes straight to the lock screen and stays there forever until I swipe it up.

I think the lockscreen is a very beautiful feature and it's great to see all these small notifications. It would be wonderful to just be able to glance at my computer and seeing these notifications without actually having to touch it.

I feel it's kind of useless to only see the lock screen while you're actually logging in, because then you'll see your notifications anyway on your start screen.

The easiest way is to right click your account icon on top right of Start Screen and Lock it.

How can I find my screen saver, I want to install a new installation of xp on my computer. But, I want to save the screen saver.
Thanks!!!!
 

A:Win xp screen saver

Files for your screen saver could be all over the place there is a place that part of the screen saver is or might be located but the best way to get your screen saver if you do not have the original file is the manufacturer's site that made the screen saver.

The one way you can start to find it would be to do a search for scr this is the extension for the screen saver but when you find it do a right click on it then properties and look for the web site address for the file.

I wish you good luck.

It seems like ever since I got the updates from Microsoft, my screen saver only works half the time. Like today I was gone from the PC for 2 hours and when I got back I turned my monitor on and there was no screen saver. But yesterday it was working fine. I also have password protect thing on, so I know no one was using my computer. Is anyone else having this problem? How do I fix it?

Normally when my computer is idle for about 10 minutes the screen saver will come on and then shortly after the screen saver with stop and and the screen will go dark, like it should, and the computer will go to sleep. But since last night that has not been happening. the screen saver does not come on and after maybe 20 minutes or so, the screen goes dark and the computer goes to sleep.

You may need to go to Control Panel and then Power Options and increase (or set to never) the settings to turn off monitor.

U might need to Run System Restore, which enables the system to go back to a date before U had a problem. Everyone forgets about the most popular fix. Is simply running System Restore, which seems to undo just about anything for most folks.

In Windows 10 the screen saver option is bured within the lockscreen settings under "screen saver settings". It still doesn't look like it has been updated since 8.1 or maybe even Windows 7. In this day and age with the quality of displays there is no real reason to use a screen saver anymore like there was in the 1990s.
Iwanted to post a poll but the option at the bottom is just a little text box and I'm not sure if i am missing something here or i just don't have that ability.
So, do you still use a screen saver and why or why not?
I don't. I just set my screen to turn off after a given amount of time and then to have it go to sleep. I really don't see any reason to use it and as for aesthetics it just looks dated and boring.

Is it necessary to use a screen saver when you're going to be away for awhile or can you just use the power setting to shut off monitor after 20 minutes. Which is better? I heard that screen savers use a lot of resources. Thanks. Dori
 

A:Screen Saver??

Screen savers were developed to protect older CRT monitors from "burn in." They are unnecessary for modern monitors. Even for the older CRTs, a blank screen was fine, except that they did not have the power saving options we now have.

So, yes, using the power settings for the monitor to save power is best.

Hello,

Would anyone have any idea why the screen saver would just stop working in Vista? I've triple and more checked the settings to ensure that it's set to run after just a minute or two. For some reason it just doesn't even start up.

I hope it isn't something really simple that makes me feel silly. But then again, maybe I do as I'd prefer no major issues. I'm just stumped!

Thanks for any ideas.

Okay, sounds silly, but after multiple attempts to activate my screen saver on my new HP p6649c running Win7 with an ATI Radeon HD4200 graphics card, I can't activate it.

I've rebooted multiple times. I've reset the screen saver settings multiple times, clicked on "apply" and "OK" and no dice. I've set the options to my own pictures as well as the default screen saver images. I have also checked the power management settings but they appear normal. Nothing seems to affect it so the monitor just sits with my desktop on perpetually.

Are there some settings on the monitor itself I should modify?

Any ideas?
