    Angry screen saver in win 2000

    ok this questiion may be a bit aggrevating but plz read on

    in windows 2000, after booting up the computer you get a screen where you are asked to enter alt+ctrl+del, user name,p/w and stuff like that ya , every moring i get up switch my computer on and do my stuff(you know) it usally take me 10 to 20 mins beforei come back to my P.C and i still find the same screen stating "press alt+ctrl+del" blah,blah but what i mean to say is this thing is gonna kill my screen !! where is the screen saver , its 10 mins and it is not out yet

    the bottem line is is there any way that i can change the speed the screen saver pops in the the login command ,same implies for win xp too....

    thanx for your time

    Hi

    Start your Computer ........Trun your Monitor Off ...there should be a small button on the monitor to turn it off....go do your stuff.......come back and turn the monitor On.........

    The Screen Saver at the alt+ctrl+del Should appear on the same as specified in the screen saver setting or is it diferent........just remembered in WindowsNT .......there is a diffferent screen Saver as to what is specified in the Display setting.........it uses it;s own screen saver .........Flickering the Alt+Ctrl +Del Screen here and there.......don't know with Windows 2000 actually my 2000 box loggs in Automatecally without waiting for me to log in ....

    --Good Luck--

    ScreenSaver don't pop until you are login in Windows. (I could be wrong)

    What I does know is the power option "Turn off Monitor" do work when you are NOT login.

    Yourdeadin,

    Valid questions and all that, but I have not seen a burnt/damaged screen for 20 years!!!

    what i mean to say is this thing is gonna kill my screen !!
    I think that modern screens are much more robust, so I really would not worry about it, from the point of view of "screensaving"

    Cheers

    Download Tweak UI From here Tweak UI 1.33

    Install it.........Go to the Logon Tab in it Check " Log on Automatically at startup" Fill in your User Name and Password you wish to log in with .........There ya go

    Hi yourdeadin,

    The obvious solution is not to switch your machine on until you are ready to use it.

    But I really believe that you need not worry. The original usage of computers on a large scale was for data entry in accounts and sales departments etc. This involved filling out standard "forms" that remained on the screen all day and eventually got burnt into the phosphor coating on the screen..............like after 3 or 4 years. Hence the idea of "screensavers"

    A modern colour screen has three scanning guns, and is quite different technology, from the old "green screen" monochrome devices.

    I have seen plenty of "dead" screens (particularly Packard Bells!!!) but I have not seen a colour one with a ghost image etched into it

    Anyway, just think about it, your wallpaper and icons will have far more effect than the Win2K login panel?

    As I said, you really don't have anything to worry about..............I have several ex-corporate screens that are between 6 and 10 years old, and are in perfect condition.

    Cheers
