I know this is something trivial but the logo during screensaver mode does not move which defeats the purpose of a screensaver unless i am missing something?

There are instructions around somewhere for supplying a custom logo. Supply one that is black.

Hi and Welcome at SETI@home and in the forum!

I wouldn't let run a screensaver.

I have set in Windows, no screensaver and the screen go to stand-by mode after adjusted minutes.
The screensaver will increase the calculation times of the WUs.

I would recommend, to install optimized project applications.
The PC would have double performance/RAC. The science would be done much faster.

Have a look in my profile, I have there an easy 'quick instruction' for to install optimized project applications.

My animated tentacles screensaver works on any color background, or transparent (which is how I like to use it). Is this verboten?
