Hello - we have a computer with a windows vista. The screensaver is the regular one that comes with windows vista [the one with the logo] and it is put to come on with 1 min. of "idle" mouse and/or keyboard.
Usually the screensaver goes on if they are idle for 1min. but we noticed that OFTEN for example if you are doing something at the computer like checking emails or visiting a webbsite with internet explorer - if the screensaver goes on and you do a "rapid dismissal" of it by moving the mouse or screensaver to take it off - OFTEN the other occasions that the screensaver should go in in the 1min. - it is quite inconsistent and it goes on in like 2min. or 2.5min. instead of going on the way it is put to go on in 1min. like it usually does.
Some people say that the computer itself or internet explorer assumes that because you did a "rapid dismissal" of the sreensaver by moving the mouse or the keyboard that you do not want it to go on right away and therefore does not let the screensaver go on correctly or something like that.
A - why do screensavers [eg. 1min. 45sec. instead of 1min.] often not go on like they are put to go on?
B - is there a way to make them [eg. 1min.] always go on like you put them to go on?
