At the Username screen the screensaver does not go on.

I'm in Win XP Pro. Up until now we've always logged out as users and that brings up the screen with all the usernames that work on this pc. After a bit the Windows Logo screensaver would kick in. About a week ago the screensaver stopped kicking in so now the monitor shows the Usernames all night and weekends. Anybody have some thoughts on this? Thanks.

With respect, a greener solution would be to switch the computer off over the weekend. Then the screensaver issue over the log-in screen wouldn't really matter. :)

Neil,
You bring up a good point but we have users coming in all times of the eve and weekend. Another idea, someone told me, is to set the power options to turn the monitor off automatically after, say, 1 hour. Then merely moving the mouse would wake the monitor back up. The screensaver would be a none issue, as you point out.
Thanks.
John
