Thanks for this valuable add-on. It definitely works! I just have a few questions.
How do the timers for BTV's screensaver and Windows' interact? When the "BTVScreenSave" is running and I move the mouse to clear it, sometimes I'm still in Viewscape and sometimes I'm at the Windows desktop.
How does your add-on interact with the Windows power-save? I rarely leave Viewscape running so I'm not sure if it makes a difference here -- after sleep mode kicks in and I wake the machine, I usually find your screensaver already (still?) running.
Also, did you realize that the bouncing text sometimes leaves text behind? It fixes itself on the next move, though, so it's not too serious an issue.

Thanks for this. Increased the WAF hugely! Makes our living room much quieter.

BTV goes into screen save mode then the Btvpowersave screensaver kicks in and shuts down BTV/BTVLink about 15 seconds later. After that, the system can hibernate. So the total time to hibernate = BTV screensaver + Btvpowersave + 15 seconds + hibernate inactivity time.
The screensaver will run 24/7 like all screensavers do.
I will have to look into the issue where text is left behind.

When I wake the machine from sleep mode I do not expect to find the screensaver still running.

Is it possible to get the source code so that I can modify this?

I'm having an odd issue with this app... it's logging into my server but it's not disconnecting (running it on my server). Do you even need to have it configured for "Server"? I thought it was just supposed to kill the viewscape.
