    various programs utilize the cpu while your computer is idle... ie P2P

    When you say froze up, do you mean the computer froze or that only the screensaver did? It sounds like Windows is simply not updating the screen. Try messing around with the power management options. Another thing you could try is uninstalling and reinstalling the screensavers.

    just the screen saver freezes, everything else is fine. its not that big of a deal just it looks weird without my cool star screen saver going like normal

    what would i do with the power managment options? and how do i reinstall the default windows screensavers? are the on the windows cd?
