ScreenSaver Activation
Is there a way to activate the screensaver instantly?
Also, in doing so can I guarantee it will return the login/password screen
when terminated?
Thanks!

Instead of trying to activate a screensaver, just lock the computer.
WINKEY+L will do this. When you press this key combination the system will
instantly go to the login screen and stay there until you enter your
password to go back to the desktop. All of the running programs and any
unsaved information will be retained until you log back on.

Re: ScreenSaver Activation
Ronnie,

I appreciate the quick reply. I am familiar with thte locking method. It is
what I usually use. I was hoping to see how I could activate the ScreenSaver
instead.

Thanks,
Matt
