Re: WMP11/Screensaver during song playing.
Many thanks,i just put the power options to balanced and wmp11 started doing
really weird things after 10 minutes,the time my screensaver comes on.The
screensaver did not come on but wmp11 tried to sync with my mobile phone and
I put the power option back to performance and now low and behold it works
perfectly, no screensaver cuts in.how weird this vista is?
