    It is different than Hardy, but my 8.10 that works on my laptop has 
that same problem. I hit the shift key and that drops the screen saver. 
Also, since about 99.8% of us are using screens that do not "burn in" 
there is little need for screen savers. But I like the one with 
electronic components swimming by.
