How can I get a screensaver to run on a PC that is also running PowerPoint in presentation mode? Let me explain the situation .... I have a kiosk on my plant floor that displays a status and statistics presentation on a repeating loop ... this is a PowerPoint (in presentation mode) presentation. Our COO wants it to also play a custom screensaver (of the slideshow type) whenever no one has touched it for a while ... then once an end user touches the screen, the screensaver would turn off and it would go back to the PowerPoint. I already have created the screensaver and tested it. It runs correctly when the PC is idle and not running PowerPoint. But when PowerPoint is running and in presentation mode, the screensaver will not trigger itself to turn on. I'm guessing that the PC must think that it is NOT idle (because PowerPoint is running a presentation) and that will prevent the screensaver from triggering. Does anyone have any advice on how to force the screensaver to run overtop of the looping PowerPoint presentation?
