Run the screensaver in the Finder [10.2]
Authored by: supra22 on Dec 22, '03 04:10:14PM

This trick is great except... it doesn't work for me now that I have upgraded to panther.. When I try to run it, the entire screen goes black and all I have is the mouse arrow. Any ideas how to make this code work for panther??

Not sure how to fix it-- my machine does the same thing!

Uncheck "Require password to wake this computer from sleep or screen saver" in the Security preference pane, and your screen won't go black anymore in Panther.

All that you have to do to get rid of this black screen, without turning off your password is to put the computer to sleep, thus allowing you to authenticate and get rid of the black screen. This is easy with a powerbook, just close the lid. I don't know about the ease or possibility of doing this on a desktop mac.
