Screensaver comes on even when set at never [SOLVED]

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So far with my Snow Leopard install on a Gigabtye EP45-UD3P has been very solid except for one annoying problem and that's screensaver starting up even when set to never in system preferences.

 

Any thoughts as to how I can stop this? I tried deleting the screensaver plist and rebooting but no luck, still set to never and it still keeps popping up.

 

Love to find a way to kill the screensaver.

Open System-Preferences and set up the screensaver-panel like you want.

Open your Home-Folder and go to Lbrary/Preferences/byHost and search for the latest "com.apple.screensaver.A-LOT-OF-NUMBERS.plist".

 

Rename the plist by deleting the numbers.

It should look like this:

com.apple.screensaver.plist

 

Copy the "com.apple.screensaver.plist" up to Home/Library/Preferences

 

Good Luck

Thanks for the help man.

 

I've been traveling and haven't had a chance to put this to work yet.

 

I'll be home over the weekend and look forward to giving this a shot.

Sweet dude, I did what you said and it totally worked.

 

Thanks for a great fix. Wish I'd thought of that myself!

 

Hope this helps others out with Hackintoshes who might be having the same problem.

Excellent! I have been going nuts for the past couple of months trying to figure out what the hell is causing my Screen Saver to go off! Just renamed the plist. Will see how it works. Thanks!
