change settings for screensaver timeout in XP
 
My screensaver takes over about 2 minutes into any work being performed.

How to lengthen the time before timeout?

any traffic these days - this was the first post I'd seen in 'newusers
for a Very Long Time.)

o Right-click on an empty part of desktop.
o Select "Properties".
o Select the "Screen Saver" tab.
o Change the number in "Wait".

(I _think_, if you set it to 0, the 'saver doesn't cut in, but I might
be wrong about that.)

Hope that works for you.

Find out what works. Then do it. That's my system. I'm always surprised it
isn't more popular. - Scott Adams, 2015
