Coming out of Screensaver

When the screen saver is on with passwords turned on, I can only get the screen from the keyboard by clicking Ctrl-Alt-Delete.
Any other key or clicking the mouse shows the backgrounds, but doesn't give back the Start bar or the page to put in the password.
It's usable but your documentation says I can use any key or either mouse button.

Any ideas?

Hi Paul,

Could you try the latest beta version from the link below? We've made quite a few improvements to the hooking systems, so hopefully it will have resolved your issue as well.

Thanks!

I download the latest version and installed it. I assume it took out the old one.
I get the same result.

I'm including a DisplayFusion.log that I initialized then went into the screen saver using Ctrl-Win-L which I defined,
then came out trying a mouse button then used Ctrl-Alt-Delete to put in my password.

I've also saved the troubleshooting text file in debug.txt

Hope this helps,
Paul

Does the same issue occur if you pick the standard Windows screen savers (i.e. Ribbons and Mystify)?

You are right. I was the Windows@Operating@System Screensaver
This was created for XP media center only and although it works, it's apparently no following Microsoft' rules.

Thanks for the help !!!

You make a great product. I will buy it.

By the way, with good screensavers, when the screen goes into power save mode, windows comes back with any mouse movement.

A suggestion on screensaver locations. in Windows 7 Screensavers can be in Windows, windows\system32 and windows\sysWOW64. You may want to search all of them to create your drop down list.

Thanks again,
Paul

Awesome, thanks for the follow-up!

Unfortunately the way our screen saver runs, it's not possible to have it turn off with mouse movement.

Good idea about having it automatically look in the sysWOW64 folder. I'll add that to our list.

Thanks!

Just a quick update, DisplayFusion now checks the sysWOW64 folder for screen savers.

Thanks!
