Hi mike_marquet,

SystemParametersInfo (SPI_SCREENSAVERRUNNING, ...).

You can use this function to tell windows that a screensaver is already running. It has the neat side effect, that windows won't start another screensaver.

Hope it helps,

And a bit different: My tip uses SETSCREENSAVEACTIVE instead of SPI_SCREENSAVERRUNNING...
