Solved How do I keep my screensaver up even if there is input?

Specs: Windows 7, 6
I have been working on a "project" in which I need to keep my screensaver up even though there is input, but I want to be able to do this via batch program. So say I run whatever command does this it would put up a screensaver for a certain amount of time then take it down after the time has expired.

If its worth mentioning the screensaver is a photo screensaver with only on slide.

Sorry for all the add-ons but might as well so I don't spam threads, I posted this very same question yesterday but the thread has disappeared, I don't know if it got taken down or what, but I did not get any warning or notification for the form being taken down. Do you know what happened?

Windows screensavers are used for these two reasons:
1) To protect a screen from phosphor burn caused by static images.
2) To conceal sensitive information left on a screen.

Any input - be it mouse or keyboard - will knock out Screensavers - unless it is password-enabled. CLICK ME for info how to do this.

As for your other question, why don't you send Justin Weber a PM and ask.

But isn't there any other way to keep the screensaver up other than password?
What i want to do is I want to have a program on a USB that launches a photo screensaver for a certain amount of time while the program does stuff in the background

✔ Best Answer
IMHO what you are looking for defy the very purpose of screensavers. I know of no other way around it.
