    After I play "Backyard baseball 2001" my screen saver gets set to "none". I can't figure out how to get this to stop happening. I am using Windows ME and this has never happened with any other game.

    Hi, I'm not sure what the point would be to disable the screensaver before I start the game, because to do that you have to set it to "none". Right?
    That is what is bothering me, the game switches it to none (or off). If I start the game with the screensaver off it just stays off.
    And, I want it to stay ON.

    I think I'll just go with the flow like that old twig and just forget about the screensaver for now. Thanks.

    I would assume the game software is disabling the screen saver for compatibility issues. In other words, if the screen saver comes on or runs in the background it will crash the game.
