Screensaver freezes system

  technique 13:21 31 Dec 2004

Anyone know why, no matter which screensaver I use, it keeps freezing my system? When returning to the screen and moving the mouse to clear the screensaver the PC just hangs. It's something that's recently happened within the last 8-10 weeks but now it's getting annoying having to manually reboot. It's WinXP Home by the way.

endless error messages and freezes which I could not trace the cause of.

It was only after forgetting to turn my screensaver back on after a defrag that I realised they had stopped happening. I dont know if the saver was the cause, but I haven't used one for over a year now, and dont have the problems.

I just set my monitor to turn of after 10 minutes idle instead.
