Shutting down the Screen Saver

How can I shut down running screensaver from within my Delphi 2.0 application? And how can I bring my application's main window above all other running applications? (Just once, not with fsStayOnTop - neither Show nor BringToFront doesn't work)

Thanx a lot...   Bocian

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This should work the same way as moving the mouse, and if the screensaver is not password protected it should stop running.

Hmmm...

Have you tried

  Application.Restore
or
  Application.BringToFront?
or
  ShowWindow(Application.Handle, SW_SHOW)
or
  ShowWindow(Application.MainForm.Handle, SW_SHOW);
