How do I permanent disable or turn off Win2k screen saver?
I have a program collecting data for hours, and when the win2k screen
saver pop up, my program changes some binary states, I saw the data
values = 0s.
I did set screen saver screen to NONE, but this didn't work, the pop
up window says: this computer is used by.. and press Ctrl-Alt-del to
..
when I did press Ctrl-Alt Del, I see my Analog inputs data are all
zeros, but they will return to normal about few seconds later.
This is not a LabVIEW issue, it is Win2K extra feature.
I also notice that some movie that plays too long also has this
problem,
