run screensaver in 'game mode'
« on: May 31, 2011, 12:21:06 PM »
For the last couple of days I have played around with various programs, in order to set up a satisfying startup order & procedure. One negative side effect has been that my screensaver suddenly became unstable. I un-installed and re-installed, but in vain; it was as if it was trying to use more memory than available. But it is difficult to alter a screensaver's priority; when the file is running, you can't use any other program!

After several hours I had the idea to add C:\Windows\Endless-Slideshow.scr to Process Lasso's "game mode", and voila!, the problem was solved. I cannot see any problems with a  screensaver added to game mode; my desktop pc is not being "used" when the screensaver is running.

Just a micro tip ;-)
