Hello

I have windows XP and when my screen saver comes on, it only stays on for a short period of time before the screen goes black. How can I extend the length of time the screen saver stays on for.

Many Thanks

The reply above will only change how long before the screensaver kicks in. If the screen's going black it means that it's gone into energy saver mode. To change the timing of this, follow the instructions above to get to the screen saver tab, then click the Power button towards the bottom of the window. This will open the Power Options where you change the 'Turn off Monitor' option - make it something like 1 or 2 hours, then you can enjoy your screensaver for longer!
