This one might be easier...


Private Const SC_SCREENSAVE = &HF140&
Private Const WM_SYSCOMMAND = &H112

Private Declare Function SendMessage Lib "user32" Alias "SendMessageA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal wMsg As Long, ByVal wParam As Long, lParam As Any) As Long

Then call from say button_Click....

Call SendMessage(Me.hwnd, WM_SYSCOMMAND, SC_SCREENSAVE, 1)
