I have my sceensaver set to go on after 5 minutes. Lately when it goes on the motion freezes after 30 seconds and it takes a few minutes after clicking the mouse or keyboard to activate the computer. I am using a saver called "Aquarium" but have tried a number of Windows savers and they all do the same thing. I have Windows XP Home installed. I tried a system restore but it doesn't seem to help.

How many programs do you have running in the background?And how much RAM do you have?

I have 512 Mgs RAM. As to the number of programs running in the background, if I look under Applications there is one program running but under Processes there is a number listed but I don't know if they are running in the background.

Possibly updating the drivers on your video card. ... If your computer has a powerful video card, then this screensaver might work okay.

It's not just Aquarium screensaver. It happens with the simpilist Windows screensavers. Also it worked fine for a year. It just started to happen a few days ago.
