enable or disable screensaver during youtube/flash RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just noticed that my screen saver(tested when setting the screensaver timeout at 1 minute exact) doesn't come on while I play a youtube video or has it on pause, is there a setting to enable it?

  • Hi,


    If I understand correctly, you would like to enable the screensaver when playing a YouTube video?


    If this is the issue, please remove third party screensaver and see if the issue can be resolved using default Windows 7 screensavers.


    If the issue persists, access Clean Boot to check the issue. If the issue disappears in the Clean Boot environment, you can continue to narrow down which entry is causing the issue.


    Also, which internet browser you are using to play the online video? If you are using third party internet browser to watch the online video, please check if there is any related screensaver settings. Besides, does the issue only occur when playing other online videos?
