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!

>>but I dont know if it works in winNT

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
