I have a program written in VB6 under WinXP which is controlling a machine. When the machine is left idle after the set period the screen saver becomes active. As the machine runs without a keyboard or mouse, how do I remove the screen saver when the program detects a new test has started ?

Thanks in advance

Hi Glassglimmer, see this thread : http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Q_22057703.html

its essentially the registry key :
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\ScreenSaveActive  =  (set to zero '0' for off)
