Macro Express And Screensavers

Recommended Posts

We have Macro Express 3.5B, build 1, on our computer. We noticed that our screensavers quit working a while back, and we've isolated this to Macro Express. When the program is active, screensavers don't work; they can be viewed from the Properties menu, but they don't activate on their own.

 

We're absolutely positive that this problem is only happening when Macro Express is running.

 

Can anyone tell us what causes this and how to correct it?

 

Thanks!

From the Macro Express Knowledgebase http://www.macros.com/kb.htm:

 

Many scheduled macros do not work properly when the screen saver or power management features have been activated. To prevent problems, by default, Macro Express disables your screen saver or power management features if you have a Scheduled macro in your macro file.

 

In most cases you should be able to get a Scheduled macro to work properly with the screen saver or power management features enabled by modifiying the macro. For example, you may need to send a keystroke and then delay to allow your desktop to be restored.

 

To enable your screen saver or power management features when using a Scheduled macro, load the Macro Express Editor and click on Options | Preferences | Scheduler. Uncheck the box next to "Disable Screen Saver when using Scheduled Macros".
