Hello!

Maybe the following will work, I use win98 and it works for me , but I dont know if it works in winNT or WinXP?

iDummy : integer;
SystemParametersInfo(SPI_SCREENSAVERRUNNING, Word(True), @iDummy, 0); {Disable}
SystemParametersInfo(SPI_SCREENSAVERRUNNING, Word(False), @iDummy, 0); {Enable}

Hope This Helps!

it doesnt, hence my comment above.
you need to replace the gina on nt based systems to do it and that is highly unrecommended.

here we have a ms support engineer saying to use a gina replacement to do it:

Agree with inthe and to verify for which I just tested it the

SystemParametersInfo(SPI_SCREENSAVERRUNNING, Word(True), @iDummy, 0);

does not work on NT.

Hello!

magellanLS I must say, it does Work!!
But it has one downside, it costs about $170 :(
But I have two good reasons to buy it:

Becuase
1)I need this kind of solution fast!!
2)It's more worth to buy it then write my own driver, after all I dont have no knowledge about writing drivers

I thank you all for your time!

If no further comments ,I will accept magellanLS answer
