    Other than the ones that come with your OS, what do you use for a screen saver? I'm bored of the ones that come with Vista.

    Screen savers waste power, I have my monitor set to turn off.

    Folding@Home. It isn't "wasting" power if it's saving lives.

    I use the iTunes album art for mine.

    It rarely comes on anyway. :)

    My pc does eventually shut off the monitor, but I like to have a screen saver for a bit as sometimes I'm just doing something else.

    Yeah, me too. 10 minutes for screen saver, another 10 to shut off monitor.

    I run it as a smp service, not as a screen saver...the screen saver version wastes "life saving" clock cycles displaying meaningless colored balls while the monitor sucks up extra juice .
    The extra power to display screen savers is most often made by coal fired power plants, that are know to cause cancer and asthma.

    So I not only "save lives" by crunching numbers 24/7, I also "save lives " by turning off the monitor when not in use.

    I use the screensaver which cyles through family pictures that comes with XP. I used to use WebShots on Win98 but when I tired to download it when I got my XP machine it came bundled with a whole bunch of bloatware. It was also pretty bloated and memory hogging on Win98 too.

    I use electric sheep.
    It's kind of like Folding@home but instead of combining the processing power of a ton of different users to cure cancer, it uses them as a rendering farm for super sweet and complex, ever-changing, never-the-same fractal animations.
    Now, if you'll excuse me I have to drive my SUV a block to buy cigarettes. I better make sure to turn my heater up while I'm gone and leave the lights on.
    Hopefully the store also got a new shipment of Wham-o brand baby seal clubs.
