Screensaver conflicts.

Post by rubberkitty » Thu Aug 26, 2004 8:45 pm

I have been having some trouble with having the option "Run Task Manager when Ctrl+Alt+Del is pressed" turned on.

It causes my Hewlett-Packard multimedia keyboard function key to initiate screensaver and/or lock PC not to work.

It also affected my Second Nature screensaver software "Upper left hot corner" (causes screensaver to initiate) not to work.

As soon as I deselect the above option everything works fine.

I have tried both and the FMLoginTPE- versions on Windows XP Pro.

Thanks for the bug report. I looked into the problem and it seems like MS uses some trick that I don't know about.

What I can do is a 'compatibility' mode where the screen saver functionality is restored. However, when you press CAD to run the task manager, the screen will flash and the applications will redraw.
