How to Create a Screensaver with Irfanview
What's wrong... Please write below.
I have set up the FTP Server on two Windows 7 (Pro 64-bit) boxes via IIS. I have found that if either PC goes to the screensaver, I cannot FTP to that PC. I get "connection timed out." The second I move my mouse or hit the keyboard to get rid of the screensaver, I can immediately connect via FTP again.
Neither box has the screensaver password protected. Is there some setting I need to change so that FTP can connect whether the box is logged on, logged off, or has the screensaver up? This PC will eventually serve as the main image to go out to about 300 remote sites with scripts that run overnight and will need access via FTP.
I am unable to lock my PC via power options. Although I have set it as to lock PC, it is impossible to do it as per Windows XP.
The only way to lock it is through the screensaver, but this is not an option for me as I work 10 hours at an office and I prefer the blank screensaver to start in one minute and to turn off the display after 10 minutes.
That's when I want the PC to be locked, I.e. after 10 minutes and not after on minute after screensaver starts.
Is there any option to lock my PC through power options without choose to lock on screensaver?
No matter what settings we use, the screensaver does not come on and the power settings do not shut off his monitor.
We tried a number of combinations - screensaver to come on in one minute, various power saver settings, but no success.
I have been getting some pix taken by a friend on their iPhone. Just Stills, Not Videos
They send it to me as an e-mail Attachment.
When I open them up in my default viewer, irFanView, they open up as a really small image.
I can make them larger in irfanview, but of course the resolution gets pretty bad.
Not too sharp with this kind of thing.
A. Am I just experiencing the limits of the iPhone ?
B. Is there a better way of seeing them larger with good quality still rather than using irfanview ?
C. Any better way of sending a larger image with still good resolution, than just sending them as an e-mail Attachment ?
Someone else has already asked this question but was not answered in the forum that I could see ie: addressing the video card issue.
But now the screensaver is set to "Blank" in the dropdown and all its options are greyed out. Is there a registry setting that controls this? I have a ton of pictures that I've used as my screensaver in the past and would like to have on this machine as well,
Toshiba laptop, about 8 months old, Win 7 genuine.
I also installed NirSoft's NirCmd command line program. One of its many features is a "monitor off" command. Works fine on my XP desktop. On the laptop, the screen turns off, but 5 seconds later it comes back on again.
Seems likely that the waking up of the screen, and the non-functioning screensaver and powersaving are related.
I have set Windows on an IMac 27'.
When I work on the Windows Platform everything works perfectly except the trackpad after a screensaver pause.
I tried to change the screensaver but again.
Does anyone know of a Windows version of the Apple TV Slideshow/Screensaver?
If I have a jpg on HDD, and view it with, say irfanview, it is noticeably sharper than the same picture viewed using the Win Fax and Picture viewer. I first noticed this when I saw that Firefox was not as sharp as the irfanview viewing.
Or the site's treatment of the shot. But even dragging and dropping a picture straight to firefox causes a loss of sharpness. When I then saw that Windows 7's native viewer also did the same thing, it made me wonder if perhaps FF just uses the same underlying display mechanism/stream that is decided by Win.
So, firstly I guess, would a browser simply use the Windows viewing mechanism/codec? If so, so I can try to get sharper jpg views.
I have asked on the Firefox forums also, about whether I can change the way that FF views images.
