    I'm deploying many gifts machines running XP Home to

  • How to get the screen saver photos slideshow goes completely after 2 minutes

    Since I got windows 7 my photo slide show I had always put to screen saver turns off after 2 minutes. I love looking at all the photos of my grandchildren, my screensaver settings is correct, but I don't want my screen to go black after only a few pictures

    Hi Emmauscapeofgoodhopesupportteam,

    I think I have the solution to your problem, who can you look at pictures of your grandchildren.

    As you said you have the correct settings for the screen saver, but your power management options can be verified.

    Please follow the instructions below.

    1. click 'START' and select 'control panel '.

    2. click on 'Harware and its' option

    3. now, select "Power Options" now you should see the options of 'Balanced or High Performance' under 'Select power management.

    4. Select the "Balanced" option and click on "change plan settings".

    5. now, you will find an option "Disable display" default is 'Never' and if not please change it to "never."

    so this should keep your monitor after happening to the screensaver. If you want to be off after some time, you can select required time to the same option settings.

  • How to activate the screen saver in windows 7?


    Impossible to activate screen saver like menu drop-down is dimmed.

    Need help! This is a very serious problem. Imagine that you watch videos from your laptop connected to HD TV via the Port of the display, the screen is HD and suddenly screen goes black because the screensaver is already activated. Then, you must get up and touch something to recover the picture on your screen. And must repeat the operation every 20 minutes!

    I have Canon set up or do anything with the settings on the screen saver as menu drop-down is dimmed.
