Stop the Screen Saver

File this one under the “duh” category, because I should have thought of it sooner. The other day I was reading something on my computer monitor and taking some regular ol’ pen and paper notes when my screen saver popped on. I moved my mouse and continued.

A few minutes later it happened again…

Frustrated, I went in and turned my screen saver off, but by the time I got back around to taking notes again I had lost my place. I wondered if there was a way that I could keep the screen saver from taking over without having to go in an turn it off every time.

Well, there is!

Just click the Start button and leave the start menu open. That’ll prevent your screen-saver from taking over!
