I am running Fedora 20 with 64bit software. (AMD 64 quad processor) I am having difficulty with the screen saver:
I can not get the options for a choice of screen saver. I click on Hardware- Display and Monitor -Screen Locker and I get the set-up window in the System Settings and the Screen saver gives only two options; Blank Screen and Random.
I'm running 11.04 but I'm pretty certain this has been happening in previous releases.
I have my screen saver set up to do the pictures from space but the behaviour on power up is different. When I turn on my PC in the morning and go to have breakfast, I come back to find a blank screen (it wasn't blank when it booted, it had the desktop up).
I downloaded the blankscreensaverfolder120 zip and installed it. Unfortunately, now the imac will not go into screen saver mode and I do not see "blackscreen" as an option to choose as a screen saver. Any suggestions?
Is there any way to remotely send a command to bring a Windows 8 machine out of screen saver (blank screen)? Maybe sending a down arrow command. We are putting together a demo for a trade show and one of the request was to be able to turn on several displays at once that will be showing the customer’s software. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated?

Recently (and I'm not exactly 100% sure when it started) my laptop started playing up on return from a resume (its been working faultlessly for ages). I suspect it may be the screen saver not turning off as the machine is fully active other than the fact the screen is black (except for a narrow blue band on the left edge).
If I delay logging in after my CentOS6 boots on my HP notebook computer, the screen saver blanks the screen. However, the system never recovers from the start of the screen saver. I cannot even cha... [by ronfer]
