How to change the sleep and display settings of your computer in order to admire the screensavers for the longer time?

Hello
Recently I have got a message from one of our users asking how to prolong the run time of his screensavers.
Here is the instruction:
In Windows XP and Vista, you can configure a screensaver easily:
For XP:
– Click Start, then click Settings and go to Control Panel.
– When the Control Panel window opens, double-click on the Display icon. This brings up the Display Properties window.
– Select the Screensaver tab, and select the screensaver you want to use from the drop-down menu.

For Vista:
– Click Start and go to Control Panel
– When the Control Panel window opens, double-click on the Personalization icon. This brings up the Personalization Properties window.
– Select the Screensaver tab, and select the screensaver you want to use from the drop-down menu

Next steps:

To change the power plan settings,
– click Change power settings;
– Select a power plan (we recommend you High Performance);
– Click Change plan settings
– Choose the sleep and display settings that you want your computer to use (For example, if you select to turn of the display in 20 minutes, it means that you screensaver will be on within these period and since the start time)
– Once you have finished changing the settings, click Save changes

    With proper licensing, contracts, and red tape, you people could add dozens more screensavers to your collection. Some ideas I have had include: Hot Air
    Ballons, Dinosaurs, Comic Book Super Heroes, ad other cartoon characters from the Saturday mornings of many years ago.
    Also College and professional sports teams (all Sports). you could add over 400 new screensavers! As long as you DO NOT add any more clocks! You have too many clocks as it is.

      Hello Scott,
      Thank you for your proposal.
      You are right, we need a proper licensing to create screensavers with pictures of popular people and cartoon characters. There is the rub!
