This single-function freeware instantly runs your screensaver, but it lacks hot key features.

SD Screen Saver's interface is boring, yet straightforward for setting the hot spot location of the program (Up Left, Up Right, Down Left, Down Right). Hovering the mouse over the hot spot location instantly ran the screensaver during testing. SD Screen Saver also lets you password-protect your screensaver for more privacy.

The program would be better if hot key options were included as an alternative to mouseover functionality, a feature commonly found in similar applications. When not in use, the program sits silently in the background and doesn't consume many of your system resources. Shortcomings notwithstanding, any user looking for a quick way to launch a screensaver may find this freeware handy.
