I have a big problem here is my prject description:
Screensaver that uses Windows Media Player activeX to play movies.
My problem is that when media player starts a new movie i get mousemove events, ok not a biggie but.....
these events also prevents my display from going into powersave.
How is this possible? how can the start of an movie generate windows mousemoves, i understand that windows generates a mousemove when a form or something is being resized.
Could it be that Media player resize itself at start of movie and windows generates a mousemove event. Then still how is it possible that the totaly different process of powersave detects this mousemove also.
This is anoying, who will want a screensaver that prevents your screen from going into powersave.
I need any working sollution to make sure powersave works again, how i dont care, should work for vb6 and winXP.
