    Stop Screen Saver when in slide show (2003)

    Hi,

    Does anyone know how you can stop the screen saver kicking in while in slide show mode. Security settings are such that I cannot change settings in the control panel.

    Cheers

    There are utilities to suppress the screen saver (e.g. Prevent Screen Saver) but you may not be allowed to download and install software, and it would most probably be against company regulations.

    I think you'll have to talk to your IT people and explain why you need to be able to change the screen saver settings.

    Thanks for your reply Hanse. Unfortunately installing an add-in is not an option. I seem to remember seeing a work around at some time, but cant for the life of me remember what it was. I think it had something to do with word or another app in the background looping through a process so that the screen saver time out was fooled.
