    "Frustration Saver"

    February 2, 2010  |   By wsimonds


    Small, easy, invisible, no bugs, no hit to performance, no complicated hooha. Just a neat work around for an annoying screen saver lock down


    There are none


    If you, like me, work in an environment where the IT department knows better than you how to configure your computer and insists on setting your screen saver to come on in too short a period of inactivity, sets it to require you to re-enter your log on information to get back to your desktop, and grays out the option to turn all of that off; THIS is the app for you. If you are running Windows, just drop this little puppy into your Start Up folder on your start menu and every time you boot up, it will run automatically in the background with just a small icon in your tool box. Just another little way of sticking it to the man. =)
