Hi All,

I use the beautiful SETI@Home Screen Saver... I set my timer for 5 minutes. So, if I'm not using my keyboard, the screen saver pops up, BUT...

After 5 minutes the screen saver DOES pop up on-screen, but for only about 1/2 second and then it vanishes. Then, 5 minutes after THAT it pops up and runs nicely. Any time I use my keyboard, the screen saver goes away, as it should. Then the cycle repeats. A 1/2 second pop up after 5 minutes and then a nice working pop up screen saver after a 2nd 5 minutes.

After I set the 5 minutes on my screensaver page it 'greyed out.' I can no longer change the time. :(

What can I do to FIX this? :)
