Default Screen Saver - How to Reverse It?

If I leave my computer for a few minutes, when I come back the screen is dark and I don't know how to get it back to where it was before I left. Can anyone help me to do this???? Thanks.

This doesn't sound like it's the screen saver to me. Sounds more like sleep mode. Screen saver usually turns off once a key is pressed or the mouse is moved.
Right-click the desktop and click 'personalize'. Then click on 'Screen sver' (i think) and check your screen saver settings. And while you're there, click on the advanced power options and check the sleep settings.

I find the sleep mode to be quite annoying and don't use it at all.

Hope this is somewhat helpful. I'm at work at the moment on my XP machine and I am just going off memory. I will double check this when I get home and post again if i've made a mistake.

Question Sleep Mode

I had a similiar question as to why my screensaver goes off and I have a black screen. Should power moders both be set to never turn off in sleep mode and display mode? g farrin
