iScreensaver version 6.8.2 includes more fixes for video playback when using the HUD (Head's Up Display) onscreen controls, improves the reliability of grabbing Thumbnail icons from video and GLB/GLTF files. It also includes small fixes in preparation for macOS Monterey and Windows 11 (both of which are in beta).
Fighting random screen saver activation on Big Sur - can't resume/exit the screensaver.
First off, let me say that I'm enjoying watching the iscreensaver of my 50 years of photos on my iMacPro/Monterey tremendously.
I decided to get a Mini M1 (Big Sur) and migrate my Home Automation to the M1. I use a 50inch TV as a monitor, displaying several cameras so I want that screen to never turn off.
Seems Apple has a bug, for some time now, that even with screensaver set to "never" will activate the screen saver somewhat randomly and no matter what you do you can't get out of the screen saver, short of rebooting the Mini.
I'm wondering if there is a command line method to quit iscreensaver or any screen saver that has been invoked.
Sorry for asking, but asking is my last hope to avoid having to revert backwards.
Thanks for listening/reading. Open to any/all suggestions to try 😐️
