[xubuntu-users] Locking up on screen saver

Hey all,

Some one just gave me a laptop for some work I did 
for them. Seems like a not too bad little machine, 
though an off-brand perhaps: an Averatec 3200 Series.

It loaded Xu fine and seems to run okay, but the 
screen saver locks it up. This is something I 
experienced with a desktop machine once, but I 
just turned off the screen saver and all was fine.

I notice that when I go into Session Settings and 
then the Screen Saver, once the image of the 
current screen saver comes up the machine freezes. 
It happens the split second the image for the 
current screen saver appears, but just before this 
the mouse is still movable. I tried to jump to the 
settings quickly to disable it before the image 
displays, but no go.

Is there a config file in can simply edit with vi 
somewhere that will disable the screen saver?

I'm sure there is, I just need to find it. Any 
help would be greatly appreciated.
