What does activation key mean?


I am assuming by the category title that you are asking about an activation key for an Operating System. An Activation Key is something like a serial number. The OS manufacturer provides the activation key to provide copyright protection and prevent software piracy. Each key can only be used one (or as often as the OS manufacturer allows). Until you enter the key, the software is not considered activated. This may, depending upon the software, have restrictions. For example, Windows gives you 30 days to activate Windows OS. After that, it essentially shuts down, restricting use to very limited activities until the activation key is obtained and entered.

There is probably something stopping your system going to sleep. Do you have a cheap optical mouse that creeps across the screen when untouched or a dodgy wireless keyboard and mouse that continues to poll the USB port to keep itself and the PC awake?

Screensaver


Vista uses a different technology for screen savers than in the past. The screensavers and backgrounds are active. Older screensaver software (I inferred from your post that you had a favorite that both of you used and not one from MS) will probably not work here.

Activating active desktop for vista


Hi Guys

The reason you can't use active desktop in windows vista is because it don't have it. Microsoft missed the wagon when they was re-designing windows. They forgot to make the back backdrop feature read GIF and HTML formats. In which is needed to run active desktop. They made it only read jpeg anf bit map real swift Micro real swift. This is because Microsoft enginers are hell bent on thinking that all window users only have the need for viewing picture and videos and the heck with the rest. yes microsoft is picture and video happy. Thats why they diden;t ad the ability for any other formats viewing. except for its browser. Real swift Micro real swift.....
