I am using powerpoint 2010 and would like to have my screen saver activate if the slideshow is on. Currently (and I believe by default), SS turns off in slideshow mode. is there a registry hack or option I can do to enable it?

I think that usually if you have a profile where you have a log-in password, the screen saver usually comes on by default regardless. (Usually people are asking how to disable the screensaver via GPO, etc.)

I ended up purchasing a program for $30 called "kiosk" that allows the SS to come on in presentation mode. easy fix
