Like several others I've seen in the archives, my Toshiba laptop screen
craps out when the screensaver time is up. First it froze the system
and required a reboot. Taking a suggestion I'd seen, I removed the
xscreensaver program. The screen still craps out but at least the
system doesn't freeze.
Looking in the "background properties" I noticed that there is NO
mechanism for disabling the screensaver. I prefer the screenblanker
built into my laptop anyways. Is there a way to disable the screensaver
in an elegant way? My in-elegent solution has been to put the timeout
at some large value, say 9999999.
I installed using RPM's and don't have the source. Not everything works
for some reason (like extace, esound) but I'll deal with those later.
In the mean-time, what screensaver does to my screen scares me.
