I just installed SETI/BOINC software from the SETI@home Web site. I've set SETI@home as my screensaver. When it activates a message stating "Connecting to BOINC application" appears briefly, then the screen turns black and remains black until I deactivate the screensaver by moving the mouse. Why am I not seeing screensaver graphics?

Maybe you havn´t received any WU. Please check your BOINC Manager and read this thread: No work for Macs?
