    Screen saver keeps poping up if i stop typing and i have 2 keep unlocking screen everytime i get back on computer and also slide show comes up when its sitting 4 awhile

    1. right click on unused space on your desktop and click properties to bring the display properties, (you can also go into start>control panel and double click on display)
    2.then go to the screen saver tab and click on it
    3. modify the time for screen saver to come up and uncheck the box that says "on resume password protect" so you're not asked for a password everytime your screen saver is on and you're returning to work on your computer.


    it's a bit different than xp but similiar in some sense..
    when you right click on the desktop go to "Personalize" to bring the display properties and then go to screen saver and modify the wait time and password protected settings.

    hope that helps!!

    post back if you have any problems
