is there a way to prevent screensaver, standby monitor, when playing games with gamepad?
its very annoying having to press something on the keyboard every time to stop screensaver from running
( on winxp pro )
screen savers are a waste or resourse's I just have my moniter set to turn off after 5 minutes of not doing anything ... what game are you playing when this happens , I can sit here for hours racing on line with my microsoft sidewinder wheel , or play a handfull of full lengh hockey games 3x20 minute periods per game NHL2002 and my screen dont go to sleep ..true I use the mouse on and off, and the keyboard to chat on line Nascar 4 , but I cant see why your rig is not reading the gamepad input as activity ...strange one indeed I guess one way for you would be to set it to have no screen saver and no power off moniter ...and when you get up to walk away just flick the switch on the moniter off.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
