Activate screen saver when no one is logged on


Cut and paste the following script into scrsaveauto.reg
and run it.

REGEDIT4
BLANK
LINE GOES HERE

[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control
Panel\Desktop]
“ScreenSaveActive”=”1”

“Scrnsave.exe”=”c:\winnt\system32\ssmaze.scr”
“ScreenSaveTimeOut”=”600”

BLANK LINE GOES HERE

ScreenSaveActive turns screensaver funtionality on/off; scrnsave.exe runs the
screen saver of choice, in this case, ssmaze.scr; and ScreenSaveTimeOut sets
time to wait before starting screen saver. If you implement this on a server,
use the blank screen saver (scrnsaver.scr) or you will have potential problems
with memory leaks and you will certainly have unnecessary cycles going to the
screen saver.

Do not implement screen saver passwords since it is not supported.

See .REG files for background information on
.REG files.
